Friday October 4th from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in MRH (SOLES 135)
We are all aware of the value of group work— among the highest ranked employee attributes repeatedly reported by employers is the ability to work effectively in a team. Our discussion will be centered on the group’s interests and may include:
• Student resistance and how to overcome it
• Group selection pros and cons of the different methods (randomly, by ability/experience, student choice)
• Types of group work
• Strategies for facilitating group work
• Assessing group work learning outcomes and grading fairly
Fabulous First Fridays are monthly drop in discussion sessions about common classroom issues which are facilitated by experienced USD faculty. Ample time is given to share and tailor approaches to your own classroom situations and supplemental resource materials are provided. We welcome all faculty members to join us and discover, or rediscover, some of the best, research and experiential based, practices for teaching and learning.
This session will be facilitated by Rangapriya Kannan-Narasimhan, Assistant Professor, School of Business Administration, and Keith Macdonald, Adjunct Instructor, Biology
Please note: you are welcome to drop in and out of the sessions your time allows.
