Empowering teachers and students for group work success
Team-based learning has been shown to improve test scores, engagement, and excitement about learning (Cohen and Lotan, 2014; Sibley and Ostafichuk, 2014) and collaboration is an essential skill for knowledge workers. Yet most students graduate high school and even college having never been explicitly taught how to align individual and group goals, manage conflict, and other skills essential to team work in their future academic and professional lives. Teachers often avoid team-based learning because managing group formation, conflict, assessment, and evaluation are challenging and time consuming.
