Group work in the online environment facilitates the building of peer networks and online community, which are noted aspects of a quality online course.  In this workshop we will further discuss the benefits to using groups in online and blended courses.  Also, we will discuss overcoming challenges to small group work, creating small groups, developing small group learning activities, and assessing group performance.

This 2-hour workshop addresses both technical and pedagogical aspects of small group work in online and blended courses.  Participants will receive hands-on training in the use of the D2L groups tool to support online discussions and file sharing. A working knowledge of D2L, specifically discussions and the drop box, is assumed.

Note: workshops with less than 3 participants may be canceled at the discretion of the presenter.
