You will leave the session with guidance and feedback on rubrics, how to create, and how to use them.

      Session Description:

      The second session in the Living Our Model series will be held asynchronously online and will feature small groups of faculty, instructional designers and learning technologists showcasing examples of technology-enhanced courses at RRU.

New tools will be revealed every day of the week for the five-day session.

    • Session 3: Team-Based Learning

      Date: November 23, 2017, 1pm - 3pm

      Mode: Face-to-face in the Centre for Dialogue, Learning and Innovation Centre

      Facilitators: Trish Dyck, Kathleen Manion, Nooreen Shah-Preusser and Sophia Palahicky

        Session Description:

        This session provided a Liberating Structure format, “Shift and Share”, to highlight reflection and processes being used and developed to enhance team-based learning experiences in the classroom. It offered space to share ideas to maximize benefits and minimize barriers of team-based learning.

        This session brought together three voices - faculty, CTET, and Team Coaching - to share a variety of tools/processes that can be used to enhance team based learning in your classroom.

        During the session we exchanged ideas with:

        • Kathleen Manion of the School of Humanitarian Studies: integrating team based learning through enhanced design, integrating coaching support, and team based activities and assessments in the classroom
        • Sophia Palahicky, Manager with CTET: designing and developing relevant team-based learning activities, assignments, and assessment
        • Trish Dyck and Nooreen Shah-Preusser, Team Coaches: coaching teams to become efficient learning communities, dealing with team challenges, using technology to enhance team learning
