nstructional technology can enhance the facilitation of group assignments. There are many tools that enable students to collaborate, communicate, share, evaluate, and produce the final group project deliverables. In addition, technology may also empower instructors to more efficiently and effectively monitor and provide feedback.
In this workshop, we will explore the available technology tools to facilitate group work and discuss how these tools can be used alone, or as a collection, to create a collaborative workspace for your students.

Constructive feedback is transformative for students in an online course. Instructor feedback not only supports student learning but also helps to decrease isolation in an online learning environment.

You will create feedback in the workshop based on the framework and walk away with a plan to incorporate constructive feedback in your own course.
