January’s resource, “I Hate Group Work!”: Addressing Students’ Concerns About Small-Group Learning, is found in InSight: A Journal of Scholarly Teaching. According to its website, the journal, published by the Faculty Center for Innovation at Park University, “emphasizes the enhancement of post-secondary education through the professional exchange of scholarly approaches and perspectives applicable to the enrichment of teaching and learning.” The article, written by Elizabeth G. Allan, identifies strategies that can mitigate student concerns about group work.
The purpose of the Resource of the Month is twofold:
1) To encourage the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) by providing examples of high-quality research.
2) To provide faculty with innovative ideas that promote effective pedagogy.
