This web site will disappear on June 1st. Please visit us at our beautiful, shiny, new site.

(Okay, so it hasn't disappeared yet. In webupdatespeak, we call that "right on schedule." Please do use the new site. This one isn't going to see much updating.)

Teamwork: Surviving Group Projects

Are your student teams running smoothly, or do they sometimes look like this?



Check out teamwork.umn.edu, created for students in response to faculty requests for a resource to help students develop teamwork skills and manage common problems that arise during course-based group projects. Using scholarly literature and extensive focus groups with students, the site sets out “Steps to Success,” dispels common myths about teamwork, addresses conflict management, and provides tools to support collaboration. Read the faculty guide on using the site.


Teaching Tips

New Web Home and Address

The Center’s web page will migrate to a new URL on June 1:  http://cei.umn.edu . The change reflects the Center’s new name – Center for Educational Innovation--and makes way for continued support and resource sharing for faculty, instructors, and academic leaders as they design innovative curricula, explore research-based pedagogies, and create high quality learning environments online and in person.

Visit our TILT blog to read more about it.
