Another great resource. What do you think about the example of a Work Breakdown Structure to further foster group management. How important do you think it is to provide individuals with roles?
no plus ones
- It is very important, particularly as the online instructor, that you set guidelines and processess/procedures at the beginning of the class, with regard to student roles. Many times students do believe the groups they've put together are far more efficient than those the teacher assembles. And, while I've seen a mix of both being very effective, it's the guidelines and processes that are significant in the outcome. Expectations are very important and should be clearly defined so that all students are responsible and accountable for their roles in the learning process.Feb 23, 2014
Appreciating what you noted about the importance around clarifying group guidelines and processes. Would you go in-depth on student roles as noted above with adult learners too or would this depend on the nature of the group?Feb 25, 2014
