We have prepared this exclusive content to guide educators at business schools with the use cases from the Wharton School and Griffith University. In this ebook, you will find classroom-validated strategies to facilitate group work in large-size online courses with effective use of technology.
Preparing students to thrive in the business world by equipping them with cross-functional skills such as leadership, collaboration and communication lies at the heart of business education. Development of these skills relies heavily on maintaining an effective feedback loop among students, ensuring group accountability, and facilitating in-class discussions. However, this can be challenging as instructors often find themselves facing pedagogical problems such as free-riding in group work, low feedback quality, result-oriented assessment or learner disengagement.
This 45-min webinar aims to gather teachers and instructional designers from business schools in a panel discussion to share and exchange ideas on improving group dynamics and social loafing in team based education.
In the webinar, panelists discussed:
• Why and how team based learning adds value to course designs
• The challenges of implementing and facilitating group work for faculty and students
• How peer feedback and peer assessment can contribute to reach learning outcomes
• How to empower faculty who use peer feedback/assessment to scale and coach students in their development
