What are some examples of collaborative learning or group work activities? Stump your partner, think-pair-share/ Write-pair-share and Catch-up.
How can you design group work assignments? think about the course learning outcomes, and consider how groups will be organized.
How will groups be formed? Allowing students to form their own groups will likely result in uneven groupings. If possible, arrange groups by skills and/or backgrounds.
How will you ensure that students are productive? Set aside time early in the semester to allow for icebreakers and team-building activities. Consider using class time for group work to eliminate students having to coordinate meeting times outside of class.
What technology might assist the group work? If technology use is required (e.g. wikis), you will need to incorporate learning activities around the use of the technology. At the beginning, do a low stakes activity that helps students become familiar with the technology.
What can the students do? Choose assignment topics or tasks that are related to the real world, and can be connected to students’ lives.
