We developed an online application to help instructors group their students for discussion. All current and past participants have access to the grouping tool: Grouping Tool Link (for participants only –requires NetId).
All participants have the opportunity to meet with an instructional coach. While this consultation can take many forms, broadly, the instructional coach is available to help plan for discussion or to observe and give feedback when participants try a discussion strategy. Our aim is to support, not to evaluate. We strongly encourage participants to take advantage of this program–it is by far the best way to improve!
