How to Get the Most Out of Team Projects (and Retain Your Sanity) in Virtual Environments

Wed, Aug 12, 2020 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CDT

It’s challenging enough during “normal” times to create a learning environment where students are highly engaged, thinking critically, and effectively collaborating. Add to the mix the uncertainties of transitioning to blended or fully online courses and the challenges are amplified. Perhaps no other setting makes these difficulties more obvious than team-based projects. The good news is that there are tried-and-true, evidence-based tactics that can be quickly leveraged to address these challenges, helping both instructors and students.

Join us for a webinar that describes these practical tactics and provides clear examples that can be immediately used in your upcoming courses this fall.
