Collaboration Strategies: Designing Student Groupings for Deeper Learning -- Thursday Sessions

We know the benefits of collaborative learning, as well as the challenges to achieving it: uneven student contributions, interpersonal conflicts, off-task behavior, noise and general chaos -- each amplified when you add the challenge of designing for remote learning. In this workshop, we dig into student grouping design by reviewing the primary research behind effective collaborative learning strategies, explore group composition with EXPLO’s elastic proximity diagrams, learn to structure group norms that establish psychological safety, and scaffold facilitation tactics for high quality cooperation whether synchronous or not. In addition, participants are invited to optional open office hours and may also submit curriculum in advance for individualized feedback.

Dates and Times:
Thursday, November 12 and 19; Thursday, December 3
11:00am - 12:00pm CT
