Facilitating Remote Group Work

  • Use part, or all, of an assignment your students are already working on in class.
  • Assign groups of students to different readings and then facilitate asynchronous online discussions of the texts together (an online version of the “jigsaw” activity)
  • Break up what was to be a larger assignment into multiple steps with smaller assignments to prevent students from feeling overwhelmed.
  • Let your students know in advance how long this activity will take, and ask them to contact you via Glow with any questions. If several students ask the same question, you can post the answer on a Glow page for everyone.
