Advanced Collaborative Learning workshop


Diving deeper.

CDI 2.X events are intensive, day-long (or longer) workshops that allow instructors to deeply explore ideas introduced in the CTE’s Course Design Institute. While the topics vary, the purpose of each CDI 2.X event does not: instructors will get a solid understanding of the underlying pedagogical theories and frameworks of the topic and lots of work time to incorporate the ideas into their teaching. Because of the advanced nature of the topics, prior participation in the Course Design Institute is typically required.

Have you tried group work and want to refine your approach? How can you create a classroom environment to support collaborative teams to function and flourish? This two-day session led by Lynn Mandeltort and Lindsay Wheeler offers a deeper dive into the essentials of equitable collaborative learning, framed by intentional design, active engagement of all students, and meaningful learning.

With a focus on enduring groups and/or assignments, participants will engage with different types of collaborative assignments/activities, practice responding to challenges such as power imbalances, apply principles of inclusive teaching to collaborative learning, and gain confidence in utilizing collaborative work. Participants will come away with an articulation of their own pedagogical values around equitable collaborative learning and a (re)designed collaborative assignment for their course.

This CDI 2.X event is open to former CDI and c3Design participants who have previously tried a form of collaborative learning, cooperative learning, or group work in their courses.

We also offered a version of this event March 10-11, 2020.
