In the “what’s coming” category: Lauren Vicker and I are doing are first talk about our upcoming book, Making Team Projects Work. Here’s a teaser: Our instructor’s guide to running team projects
It’s arranged using the classic I-P-O model of group work. To make team projects successful, instructors need to properly design a task, form groups, and set the context. These are the inputs. Then, they need to manage the team project. This requires observing and checking in about team process. Finally, instructors need to examine task and social outputs – both of these are important to our students long-term success.
