When Group Work Doesn’t Work: Insights from Students

Day Friday, November 01
Time 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM
Where LN-G208

Join the CLT and biological sciences in welcoming Peggy Brickman, Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Professor at the University of Georgia, who will present “When Group Work Doesn’t Work: Insights from Students.” 


College faculty are increasingly abandoning the traditional mode of delivering content in lectures to incorporate more active learning that encourages students to work in groups with their peers to solve problems and learn through collaboration and exploration. Group work and collaboration can profoundly increase students’ motivation and achievement, but instructors confess that they rarely adhere to procedures to insure equity and shared contributions required for true collaboration. This seminar will review research recommendations for effective procedures to plan, monitor and intervene so that students of diverse abilities and backgrounds can all benefit from collaborative group work, no matter the class size or discipline. Registration is not required to attend the workshop. For more information, email Michelle Withers at mwithers@binghamton.edu.
