CATME Smarter Teamwork: An Online Program for Managing Small Groups in the Classroom

Wednesday, November 15, 2017 - 2:30 pm

Facilitator: Brittany Flokstra, department of chemistry and biochemistry

Do you regularly work with small groups in your classes? Would you like a better way to teach students how to work in teams, keep them accountable and review their peers’ participation? CATME is a research-based, online program that "prepares students to function effectively in teams and supports faculty as they manage their students' team experience." CATME helps students organize themselves into teams using research-based criteria and holds students accountable for their contributions by allowing them to evaluate their team members fairly. It also provides faculty with evaluation feedback to help them better understand student group dynamics, what problems might be occurring and how to fix them.
