Ample evidence points to collaborative learning as a powerful teaching and learning strategy to engage students at multiple levels, yet it is challenging to implement group work effectively. Join Elizabeth Barkley for a 3-hour workshop on collaborative learning and group work in which you'll learn to start with "intentional design," ensure the collaborators are indeed "co-laboring," and develop tasks that result in "meaningful learning" (Barkley, Cross, & Major, 2005 p. 4).
