From Passive Audience to Active Learning: Engaging the Class in Team Presentations

Taken from: Joanne Marciano Crossman, EdD, Faculty Focus 

We know well the many benefits of team projects, including enhanced learning outcomes, consideration of multiple perspectives, opportunities for risk-taking, development of conflict management techniques, and more. Across disciplines, we commonly require students to present their collaborative projects to their peers. These presentations can be informative for the class audience, and may also serve to reinforce the teams’ content knowledge. However, team presentations may inadvertently provide opportunities for passivity if students tune-out their peers during the presentations.

After all, if the professor is not teaching the material, how important could it be? To address this potential pitfall, group presentations in my courses take a different approach. I require project teams to collaboratively prepare, submit, and direct a learning activity associated with their research. Team members submit to me, in advance of the presentation, a completed template explaining how their learning activity meets each of these seven requirements. Here’s what the template includes: Collaborative Learning Activity Requirements
  • Activity Title:
  • Objectives: (What specifically do you want the class to do/demonstrate?)
  • Materials: (What materials, handouts, notes, and items will you use?) Read More...

Canvas Corner

Did you know... you can use Student View to see your Canvas course as a student? To access Student View; 1. Click on settings on the course navigation menu. 2. Click on “Student View” on the far right of the screen. You will see “test student” in the gradebook but it will not affect course analytics. When you are in Student View, you can submit assignments, post to the discussion board, take quizzes, etc. This is a great way to ensure you’ve set up Canvas the way you intended.
