Incorporate self-reflection and assessment into the teaming process
Using Collaborative Teams In and Out of Class
Research tells us that learners benefit when they collaborate in teams. This teamwork helps develop learners’ critical thinking skills, increases their persistence, and improves their understanding of diversity.
Yet students consistently rate collaborative teamwork negatively. Students accustomed to being given the “right answers” in lectures are often impatient with the collaborative process. To make matters worse, many instructors do not offer adequate guidance on how to work together productively.
This seminar examines barriers that prevent the successful use of collaborative teams in and out of the classroom and suggest methods for avoiding these pitfalls.
In just 60 minutes, it will show you how to incorporate assessment and manage your teams while promoting shared responsibility for learning. The methods will work in both large and small classes.
