Annual Pearson Master Class

Presenter: April Wright, UQ Business School, University of Queensland.

This Master Class tackles a common challenge facing all management educators – how to get students to learn effectively in groups.  In this Master Class, you will be introduced to a team-based learning approach that minimises the problems of students fragmenting their learning by dividing up group tasks and/or free-riding.  Evidence shows the approach substantially increases student preparation, in-class participation, exam performance, and evaluation feedback.  Through a series of interactive activities, you will be shown how the team-based learning approach works in the classroom and provided with learning and assessment resources to adapt the approach for use in your own course teaching.

The Master Class will be presented during the first concurrent session of the ANZAM 2012 conference on Wednesday morning, 5 December 2012.
