Many of us can see the teaching and learning benefits of assigning group projects. We also see the hurdles in motivation and grading that can make these projects cumbersome. This workshop will help you design group projects that are aligned with your course learning objectives and built for efficiency and effectiveness. We will explore several types of collaborative projects, identify assignment structures that motivate students, and investigate grading tools that evaluate both individual and group success levels.

Registration for University Center for Teaching and Learning workshops is mandatory. Registering for workshops ensures the distribution of pre-workshop materials and helps maintain the integrity of our attendance records.

If you have any special accommodation needs, please contact us at workshops@teaching.pitt.edu in advance.
