SOTL Event

Creating and Managing Effective Student Teams

There are many reasons to put students in teams – teaching them to work in teams, the learning benefits of collaboration, the diversity benefits of finding out other students’ perspectives, and the ability to provide a deeper level of feedback on the smaller number of assignments submitted by student teams are among them. For all these benefits, having students work in teams introduces other issues for faculty to manage – from forming teams to dealing with teams in crisis to evaluating how much each student contributed to assignments submitted as a team. Research-based strategies to address these issues will be discussed, and award-winning online tools that can help will be introduced – tools that also provide opportunities for faculty to engage in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.

Helping International and Multilingual Students Become Better Writers

At Indiana University, as at many US institutions of higher education, the numbers, diversity, and visibility of international and multilingual students continue to grow. Many of these students show up to our classes without the requisite English skills for completing required writing assignments and for succeeding in classes where peer learning, group work and team projects have become the norm. And, of course, most teachers have neither the time nor the expertise to teach English to those students who may be struggling.
