Bringing the World to Your Classroom, and Your Classroom to the World

With globalization, the rapid proliferation of online information, and increasing complexity of problems, the development of collaborative learning skills is essential. Former models of group work, based on traditional assignment design such as papers and presentations, are limited in their effectiveness. Technology is changing the face of collaboration and enabling far more creative, engaging and effective learning opportunities for students and faculty. Professor John Boyer and Katie Pritchard believe in assignments with real world application and an audience beyond the classroom. They share methods to create authentic learning experiences using widely available software and tools tailored to the classroom.
