Effective In-Class Teamwork Using Roles

Presented by: Melissa VanAlstine-Parris, Associate Professor and Chemical Hygiene Officer, Chemistry Department

Evidence Based Educational Practices favor in-class team work to support better learning outcomes, but these strategies are often difficult to implement. More and more students are coming to college with no prior experience in collaborative learning. Group roles provide students with a clear avenue for participation. In organized and defined groups, students are less likely to be unengaged or left out when they know how they are responsible for completing activities and assignments.
