Effective active learning strategies rely on embedding five principles of collaborative group work into the entire course design. Participants will explore active learning class sessions and team projects designs and receive the CETL booklet, Active Learning and Small Group Learning. Active learning classroom instructors are strongly encouraged to attend. Participants are eligible to achieve the Certificates in Active Learning and Small Group Learning.

Part II: Group learning can yield gains in student learning. However, students may not know how to lead and manage peers in a group context and instructors often miss crucial aspects of small group learning design that would drive teams to their highest potential. How should group leadership be handled and how do you design in class group work? How should group projects and members be evaluated? Principles 2-5 will be examined and applied, culminating in a critique of sample group projects using the five principles learned.
