Event Details

UWM is in the process of constructing five active learning classrooms in the Northwest Quadrant that incorporate flexible furniture, grouped seating, advanced technology and a commitment to interactive learning. Using these spaces effectively implies rethinking a traditionally designed course in order to support increased student responsibility for their learning and a reliance on collaboration. However, perhaps no other pedagogical strategy elicits more complaints than group work. How can you ensure collaboration rather than piecemeal work? How can you encourage integrating and synthesizing information as well as thinking critically together?

  • Part I focuses on setting up groups; an overview of Principles of Group Collaboration; and, Principle 1: Interdependence.

Participants will receive a booklet of small group strategies. Bring a course syllabus and a specific assignment and begin constructing an effective semester long small group assignment using five core principles. Future NWQ instructors are strongly encouraged to attend.

Part I topics include: Setting up groups; Overview of Principles of Group Collaboration; Principle 1: Interdependence
