Groupwork/Teamwork and Evaluation in Remote Teaching (CTE7530)Export this event to calendar

Wednesday, July 29, 2020 — 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM EDT

Location: Online 

Facilitator: Scott Anderson (Centre for Teaching Excellence), Jason Thompson (Centre for Teaching Excellence), and Katie Plaisance (Knowledge Integration) 


In this session, we'll discuss issues to consider when incorporating groupwork/teamwork in your remote course. We hope this can be a time to raise questions and share things that have worked well or not. Some issues we'll raise include:

  • what is the purpose of the group project/activity? (i.e. what do you want students to learn from it?)
  • how much structure/direction is provided to students?
  • how will students and groups be assessed and graded?

This session is co-hosted by CTE and the Collaboration and Teamwork Community of Practice. 

The Collaboration and Teamwork Community of Practice is co-organized by the Department of Knowledge Integration and Centre for Teaching Excellence (CTE).  The purpose of the community of practice is to provide an opportunity for instructors – as well as those who study collaboration and teamwork -- to connect with their peers to share examples, experiences, ideas, resources and best practices around collaboration, teamwork and group work in education. This is the fourth meeting of this community of practice (CoP).
