Designing and Managing Collaborative Assignments

presented by Deb Hoskins, Inclusive Excellence Coordinator &
Bryan Kopp, Writing Programs Coordinator
Friday, March 8, 1:30-2:30 p.m., 161 Wing Technology Center

Studies suggest that collaborative work enhances learning for all students, helps students develop competence in interacting with others who are not like themselves, and teaches students the collaborative skills they need to succeed in most contemporary workplaces.  But research also indicates that assignments that require students to work together over time only yields such benefits when they are very well designed and managed.  In this workshop, you will learn some principles for designing and managing collaborative assignments, and then delve into the complexities of implementation as you lay out a plan for an assignment in one of your courses.
