As instructors we often present the students within our classrooms with opportunities to develop constructive collaborative behaviors. All too often, however, collaborative activities are presented to them with little to no instruction provided on how to actually collaborate. The skills and behaviors necessary for effective collaboration are often assumed by instructors to already be present and mastered in their students. In this session you will reflect on the use of collaborative learning in your own classrooms. You will learn about topics for instructional content to help you develop and reinforce constructive collaborative behaviors in your students.
