Teachers on Teaching: Effective Student Teamwork Workshop with Carol Marchetti

For years, instructors have heard that assigning group work is a good teaching strategy. Research shows that by working together in small groups, students can develop critical thinking skills, exchange knowledge, share expertise, increase motivation, and improve their attitudes toward learning. Yet, when asked, many students describe negative experiences with group work and may even declare that they prefer individual work.

In this session, we’ll discuss ways to implement student teams in a variety of environments and for a variety of tasks. We’ll address approaches to creating student teams, instructional supports, tools for communication, and the instructor’s role in managing teamwork.

Dr. Marchetti is a professor in the School of Mathematical Sciences, College of Science; an associate faculty member in the Research Center for Teaching and Learning, National Technical Institute for the Deaf; and a recipient of RIT's Provost Award for Excellence in Teaching.
