Workshop description

In this online session, delivered by Donna Carroll (EDLAB), we’ll discuss the various challenges of facilitating Problem-Based Learning in an online setting, with an emphasis on stimulating successful group collaboration.  We’ll look at some tools and techniques for activating prior knowledge from the students in your groups, facilitating brainstorming and online discussions, and will also provide a few tips for providing informal (peer) feedback and evaluation.  This is relevant for teaching staff who facilitate online tutorials as well as supervisors of group work project and assignments.
