Join us on Thursday, March 23 for a Teachers Talking -Designing Small Group Assignments. Designing small group assignments for college courses can be challenging due to the diverse ways that students engage learning. However, the benefits of small group work and collaborative student learning are many. In this Teachers Talking Session, Amanda Nienow and Patricia English-Schneider will discuss ways to design small group assignments that are intentional, equitable and that integrate course content with a focus on the small group process. The facilitators will also provide some tips for creating small group assignments and describe examples of group assignments that they incorporated into their classes in chemistry and communication studies. The workshop is intended for faculty who want to gain an understanding of the benefits of small group work and for those interested in developing and implementing small group assignments in their classes. The program is from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the St. Peter Room. Refreshments are provided.
