With Interactive Study Materials tools, instructors create engaging preparation activities by uploading multimedia content and enriching them with questions and discussions. Students actively engage in studying the materials by responding to questions, asking questions, and discussing with others.
Students complete a quiz within Team Based Learning tool to consolidate the knowledge gained during the pre-class activity. This step holds students accountable for the preparation stage, and getting prepared for group work in subsequent application exercise.
Students work on the same quiz in teams based on the feedback from the iRAT, also in the Team Based Learning tool. This process allows students to consolidate the knowledge learned during preparation stage and develop collaboration skills.
Students work on a group project in which they need to apply the knowledge they have gained, present their solutions to their peers, then discuss these with each other in an online discussion forum facilitated with Discussion on Work tool.
Students engage in group feedback and self-evaluation based on the collaboration skills criteria within Group Member Evaluation tool. This helps to develop their self-regulatory skills, by seeing how they can improve and set goals for where to go from here based on their feedback.
Instructors provide students feedback on the observed collaborative process, and output of the group work, using Skill Review tool.
