Teaching students through working in groups has its advantages and disadvantages. The seminar will examine some successful examples of where group-working has benefited Engineering teaching, and it will also invite participants to share their experiences of group work, and to examine the pros and cons of group working from the teacher’s perspective, as well as from the students’ perspective.

Please come along to the ASPIRE event where experiences of cross-disciplinary group-working will be shared. If you are considering group work as a tool in your teaching, this seminar may give you some useful insight into the utility of the group work concept for your discipline.


 Everyone welcome, no need to book! 

Please ensure you are on the lookout for the 2014-2015 seminar programme!
