Alternative names: Studygroup or Docendo (by teaching)
Presentation about the course format:
Classroom facilitator is involved as a guide for all of the below.
Team creation: Teams of N learners are formed, with similar levels of competency. (might be a “team up” junction point in an adaptive and personalized course/MOOC)
- Notification of team starting
Topic assigning: N topics are assigned to the group, one topic each, to act as a student teacher to the others
- Choose top 3 topics, then system will choose who gets what.
Topic research: Each student teacher is given access to a library of resources gathered from previous iterations of this topic. They may also find their own resources, of course.
Topic presentation: Each student teacher builds and then gives a presentation to others about the topic to help them learn it as efficiently as possible. Q&A etc, until they feel that everyone understands the topic.
- Learners rate the presentation of each student teacher (rubric)
- Teachers rate the presentation of each student teacher (rubric)
Team assessment: The whole team goes through assessment of the N topics. This can be an external assessment or possibly a peer assessment).
- Teacher (or system) assesses the Learners.
- Learners get results.
Team retrospective: After the assessment, team convenes to see how it went.
Topic catchup: If anybody failed assessment of any topic then it’s the responsibility of the team to help them further. Anybody can help the troubled learner, who then goes back to re-assessment of the problematic topics (back to step 5 until they pass). Classroom teacher/facilitator can be called in to help.
- Learners can rate/comment on other learners.
The team can continue back to #1 to tackle another group of N topics.
