Student engagement and community are characteristics of a quality course regardless of the modality. While poorly structured group projects can lead to frustration and stifle motivation for students, well-organized projects can pull students together as a team allowing them to learn from each other by sharing perspectives, mindsets, cultural expectations, and ideas. Join us for part 1 of this two part series and learn how to successfully plan and utilize group work in your courses.
