Student-Team Selection Using A ‘Speed-Grouping’ Process
Many courses use student-team based learning. An early semester challenge is setting up the teams. Typical options include students self-selecting teams or instructor-assigned teams. Both have benefits and challenges. The ‘Speed-Grouping’ Process is a modified Speed-Interviewing/Dating technique which blends instructor-assigned teams with students self-selected teams. Both the instructor and students have a say in the team member selection decision making process, which can improve the students’ team engagement. Session participants will gain the information and experience for using this mixed-method process for student team selection.
