The Center for Ethics and Leadership and the Center for Teaching Excellence invites faculty to attend a panel discussion on Reducing The Stress, Increasing the Collaboration: Developing and Supporting Effective Group Projects.

Group work--is there an approach that garners more groans from students? And causes more trepidation amongst faculty? We as teachers know that, when groups work well, the results can be amazing--students are able to achieve more than they would independently as they produce work of a high caliber. We also know that working effectively in groups is a skill that will serve our students well beyond our class. On the other hand, when groups go awry, they can have significant consequences for everyone--a learning experience to be sure, but perhaps not the one we are intending. How can we design projects and support students in taking ownership over a group's dynamics and output?

In this panel discussion, we'll have faculty members from across campus discuss approaches for designing group projects, forming groups, and managing student expectations and interactions. The goal of this session is to hear what has worked for colleagues and to leave with strategies for your own classes. Come join us as we snack on wine and cheese and share pedagogical insights!
