Managing Groupwork in the Classroom: From Conflict to Collaboration
Tuesday, November 10, 2009
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Library Conference Room 233
Faculty struggle to help students work well in classroom teams, just as professional staff struggle to help students run their organizations. Grading gets thorny. Miscommunications abound. But some key strategies can help, so that students learn and achieve goals better, and make our lives easier in guiding them. Led by Dr. Cheryl Tromley, Professor of Management. Professor Tromley brings her expertise in managing groups or teams to maximize learning and avoid dysfunctional conflict. She will provide new ways of thinking about group work as well as tips on providing the best experience for students and faculty. Co-sponsored by the Fairfield University Conflict Resolution Consortium and the Center for Academic Excellence, with generous support from the Humanities Institute of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Division of Student Affairs. Lunch will be provided.
