Have you ever been part of a group learning experience and thought that it was very frustrating? This can happen for a variety of reasons that could come from how the group was structured, how group members behaved, or how the group’s progress towards its goal was monitored. When cooperative learning is well-designed it minimizes opportunities for students and instructors to experience these types of frustrations. Join this interactive workshop to explore best practices that will enhance your students’ experiences as they learn cooperatively in groups.

Teaching Excellence - Topics addressed in this workshop relate to the following elements of the Definition of Teaching Excellence at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign:

  • Well-designed
  • Well-delivered


This workshop counts towards the requirements of the Graduate Teacher Certificate
