Webinar 25 March 2019 at 3 pm (SAST) then take part in online discussions during the week!
\We need to work together toward achievements not possible to make on our own. Whether we are co-authoring articles as academics, working on teams in the office, contributing to efforts in the local community, or building partnerships central to Sustainable Development Goal 17 , most of us need to collaborate in some way. We need to be able to cross boundaries of geography, discipline, and communicate face-to-face or online. How do we learn to organize and manage complex collaborative efforts?
Dr. Janet Salmons suggests that thoughtful design of social learning experiences allows students to meet curricular objectives while developing their confidence and abilities to work collaboratively. Join Dr. Salmons for an interactive webinar and forum discussions about ways to plan and facilitate collaborative learning in online or blended learning classes. She will share practical strategies drawn from her new book, Learning to Collaborate, Collaborating to Learn.
