Effective Groupwork Guidelines

Date: Sunday, January 18th, 2004 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Christopher Jon Poel & Robert M. Homan

In this presentation, we will describe a set of cooperative-learning materials that have been used to train university students of various levels to work effectively in groups.
