Designing for Collaboration: Group Projects in the Online Environment

Wed Feb 16, 10:00 AM - Wed Mar 2, 11:30 AM (MST)
Designing for Collaboration: Group Projects in the Online Environment

This training is offered using a flexible “flipped” format!

Explore the complex and mysterious landscape that is online group work! While many online instructors avoid group assignments, this training will cover the potential rewards of taking on this challenge. We’ll endeavor to steer you clear of pitfalls and discover new strategies to incorporate in different settings and provide you with practical ideas for effective and enjoyable online group work.

We are excited to share that we will be using a “flipped” approach for this session. This means that between February 16th and March 2nd we will be providing you with access to a guided, self-paced training in Canvas that you can complete at a time of your choosing during the two-week period. It takes about one hour to work through the training materials--you can complete it all at once or over a couple of sessions. Additionally, once you have completed the self-paced training, you will have the option to schedule a one-on-one consultation with an instructional designer to share, discuss and refine your ideas for group work in your course.

You will receive information on how to self-enroll in the training in Canvas in a confirmation email that you will receive the week prior to February 16, 2022 .

Please note that our training sessions are geared specifically toward faculty.
