Pedagogical Journal Club

Monday, October 16, 2017 -
11:30am to 12:30pm


In October the Pedagogical Innovations Journal Club will discuss 3 articles, with the main focus on “Does Team Formation Impact Student Performance, Effort and Attitudes in a College Course Employing Collaborative Learning?” published in 2017 in the Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. The authors looked at the effects of how teams were formed on student performance. Three sections of the same course had teams formed in three different ways: instructor formed, student formed, and random. They found no difference in student performance. The other two articles also look at the effect of how teams are formed on student performance and both found no effect. We will discuss the implications of these articles for forming student academic teams.
