EDUC 6176 - Facilitating Collaboration and Group Process♦


(3 sem. cr.) Research shows that adults learn best in a social environment. Through collaboration and idea exchange, a supportive “community of practice” is generated where learners co-create their experience in socially meaningful ways. This may take the form of discussions, peer-to-peer activities, small-group work, and student-centered assignments, among other approaches. This course examines the mechanics of collaboration and identifies facilitation practices that lead to student success. Also addressed are issues of consensus and decision making, trust-building, collaborative teaching, and group process online.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
