Getting students to work together -- is it really possible?

Workshop presented by Michael "Bodhi" Rogers

Getting students to work cooperatively in groups can be challenging and actually detrimental to student learning if not done properly. Having a formal group assignment plan, roles that students are accountable for, and a way of assessing group versus individual work can lead to gains in student learning. During this workshop we will talk about strategies for each of these issues and work through varying models of cooperative group work.
