Group Work

"Group Work" encompasses a wide range of collaborative projects. In general, group work falls into two categories: students working in groups for the purposes of discussion and students working on collaborative projects, often with a class presentation component. The locations listed below are those in which collaborative activity is specifically employed as a formal part of the course, or suggested as a particularly useful way of teaching a given author or issue. Several other pedagogies listed below also involve collaborative dimensions.
