Event description

Description

This session is for College of Charleston faculty only.


Effective collaboration is a foundational skill that is taught as early as kindergarten. By the time students reach college, one would think they would be expert team players. Unfortunately, any professor can tell you that students frequently complain about group projects and struggle to communicate competently, schedule meeting times, and manage conflict.

So this discussion-based session will cover several practical strategies to make both in-class collaborative work and out-of-class group projects "drama-free."

By the end of this session, participants will be exposed to a variety of proactive strategies faculty and students can implement to make group work more effective and efficient, including:

  • how to assign groups for maximum productivity and minimum conflict.

  • how to establish policies and procedures for handling social loafing.

  • how to assess group work, including self, peer, and professor assessments.

  • how students can use technology to make group work more efficient.
