Collaborative-learning techniques are an effective way to promote learning and engagement in the classroom. But how can we help students develop skills for learning across differences? In this workshop for Washington University faculty, topics will include the following:
Understanding students’ experiences of group work, including bias or the perception of bias
Setting expectations for collaborative learning across differences
Assigning roles within groups
Facilitating to encourage participation by all
Integrating time for students to “report out” and learn from one another across groups
Providing (and asking for) feedback on group work
Presenter: Beth Fisher, PhD, Director of Academic Services, The Teaching Center and Lecturer in Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies
