FEATURED WORKSHOPS

Facilitating Groupwork in Online ClassesOne of the lesser-known facts about online courses is that student connections and camaraderie are easily developed in virtual environments. Blackboard offers several platforms that foster student collaboration and group projects, and effective use of discussion boards can create a classroom vibe that is more connected and supportive than many face-to-face classes. This workshop will showcase how to design group work assignments using the tools available in Blackboard, and highlight some best practices in facilitating meaningful and effective discussions in online learning environments.

Facilitating Groupwork: A Survival GuideGroup assignments can keep your students actively engaged and break up content delivery to make your course structure more varied. In laboratory courses, groups are customary. If you find it challenging to effectively manage multiple groups working at the same time, would like some tips on how to handle disengaged students, or if you would like to try something new with your group work activity, then this workshop is for you! We’ll discuss tips and best practices for managing groups, share experiences with group work, and provide each participant with a “Group Work Survival Guide” packet (and pdf) that you can distribute to your students.
