Many employers want to recruit graduates who are able to work well in multicultural groups. Findings from research using the Global Education Profiler (GEP) show that many students are not experiencing the academic integration they would like. Our e-Course 'Working in Groups' has been designed to help foster more effective collaboration among students from different backgrounds.
Working in Groups: a CAPsule blended learning tool
This is an e-course, with an accompanying Instructor's Guide when the e-course is to be used with a group of students. See a 2-minute demo - click 'play' in the image below.
Working in groups is an online course designed to help learners work more effectively in diverse groups and teams. Learners will:
- develop their professional communication skills for teamwork,
- gain insights into their own communication style(s),
- enhance their understanding of how culture affects communication in the workplace.
They will explore four core components of team communication:
- Communication patterns
- Trying out ideas
- Work patterns
- Giving feedback
Each component is supported by video clips of students' reflections and has prompts to help learners reflect on questions about their own experiences. In addition, each component has a section on research perspectives and each also includes mini case studies and micro tasks designed around authentic examples of student teamwork.
A key feature is reflection, because reflection helps turn an experience into learning. An Instructor's Guide is also available when the course is to be used with students and multiple licences have been purchased. Course outline
