Teamwork is a skill perennially sought by employers. This is especially true in today’s work-from-home world that requires intentional effort to stay in touch with teammates. How best can we prepare our students for this future? In this workshop, we will discuss how to mentor your students through group projects as a means to practice teamwork with an eye towards the professional world. Topics will include getting buy-in from resistant students, navigating potential pitfalls (especially in an online course), and some suggestions for grading policies that encourage open but fair communication between group members and you.
This is a TA-to-TA workshop, designed for TAs and offered by one of CITL's Graduate Affiliates.
This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
