Why this journey?

Learning journeys are multi-step course templates based on active learning for different target learning outcomes. This journey will help you with:

Implement authentic, multi-layer assessment

The journey encourages students to apply their knowledge to solve a real-world business problem, thus acquiring essential employability skills. With authentic assessment opportunities, instructors can monitor the development of these skills and provide actionable feedback.

Scalable across modalities and class sizes

Whether it is online, blended, or in-person, you can always adapt this journey to your learning goals and course domains. Moreover, the use of technology allows for scaling to different class sizes: small, medium, and big student cohorts.

Promote accountability and fairness

By giving students the opportunity to assess their peers’ performance and contributions to the group, instructors can gain deeper insights into team dynamics and ensure that everyone is graded fairly for their work.

Journey steps

1
STEP 1

Assign students to groups

Using Group Formation, the instructor creates a survey that investigates students’ preferences when working in groups. Based on the survey answers, the tool automatically groups students with other peers who answered similarly (to ensure compatibility) or differently (to complement each other). After all the groups are decided, students proceed to work on the group project.

step 2

Interview with a company

Students select a company in groups, prepare interview questions, and interview them to collect the necessary information to prepare a business plan. Afterwards, they draft a business plan and work on their presentations together. This process promotes critical enquiry and enables students to apply their knowledge to a real-world problem.

Step 3

Peer feedback on the business plan

Groups submit their business plan drafts to the Peer Review tool, where they provide feedback on other groups’ work based on a set of criteria. This process stimulates meaningful dialogue and trains critical thinking skills. Based on the feedback, groups proceed to revise the business plans.

Step 4

In-class presentation

Students improve their business plans in groups based on the feedback, then present them in groups and receive feedback from instructors. The activity develops their public speaking skills and helps them select key points to condense their plan to an “executive summary”.

• SYNCHRONOUS • CLASS

Step 5

Group evaluation

Students engage in group feedback and self-evaluation based on the collaboration skills criteria within the Group Member Evaluation tool. This helps to develop their critical thinking and self-regulatory skills, by seeing how they can improve and set goals for where to go from here based on their feedback.
