ToGetThere: Empowering teachers and students for group work success
Jesse Harris & Laura Pickel
Working in teams is hard and teaching group dynamics takes time. But, team-based learning has been shown to improve test scores, engagement, and excitement about learning and collaboration is an essential skill for knowledge workers. Teachers often avoid team-based learning because managing group formation, conflict, assessment, and evaluation are challenging and time consuming. ToGetThere is a centralized digital repository of interventions and activities designed to help teachers and students learn, perform, and reflect in group work. It also serves as an online community of practice designed to promote sharing and learning between teachers, researchers, and students about group work experiences.
