Groupwork Survey Invitation, Learning Innovation Hub (Macquarie University)

Dear colleagues,

Are there any topics in Learning and Teaching that make you a bit nervous? For me, this topic is groupwork. As a student I hated groupwork with a passion because I usually did most of the work myself and felt resentful of the rest of the team. There is an elegant term in academic literature for it – a ‘sucker’. Check out this publication.

As a teacher and Learning and Teaching professional I keep hearing about numerous benefits that groupwork can bring (deep, cooperative, experiential learning, etc.) and I want to give concrete rather than vague advice to academics on how to get the most out of groupwork. So I thought I’d call on my ‘brain trust’ (the ASCILITE community) to collect some ideas on making good groupwork happen. In return, I promise to create a ‘report’ on what I’ve learnt and share the resources back with the community.

So what can you do to help?

Please respond to this very brief survey, and feel free to send me any useful groupwork resources that you know of/use. I’d really appreciate it!
