Junior Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning

Come join this learning community by participating in this specially designed seminar series for junior faculty, though all are welcomed to participate. We'll share strategies and best practices for effective and efficient teaching. There will be great conversations, handouts, and lunch! Since each session builds on each other, we hope you will be able to attend all the meetings.  

 

Session 5: Creating Effective Team Projects and Student Teams

 

Wednesday, Oct.17, 2018
11:30 – 1:00
Room 428, Armory Building 
 

With the increased demand for students to work effectively in teams, many instructors have implemented short-term and semester-long team projects in their courses. There are many benefits derived from this experience, such as mastering the content through teaching their peers. Often, however, these experiences are not optimal because the students (and faculty…) were not adequately prepared.  Here are some key issues we will address:

  • What are some of the considerations for making this a valuable learning experience?
  • How should teams be created?
  • What are important team skills that students should learn?
  • What makes a good team assignment?
  • How do we assess team work?

 

We'll address these questions and more in this highly interactive workshop. Handouts with sample assessment forms will be provided.

 

This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate, the Teacher Scholar Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
