Week 4: Overview

Weekly Activity

During this week, you'll be guided through an online learning activity by a team of your peers in FLO.

Focus for the Activity

Based on real situations that occur in collaborative learning, this week’s case study highlights some of the issues that can arise in online teams of learners. Through analysis of the conflict between team members in this example (extrapolated from email records), you’ll have an opportunity to identify the group dynamics involved and propose responses.

Goals

This activity is intended to help you recognize the potential impact of team dynamics and plan responses that will help groups learn together more effectively.
