Collaborative group work can be an effective method to facilitate inquiry-based learning. By scaffolding assignments throughout the semester, students work in teams to progress from structured to open-ended and independent levels of inquiry. In this workshop you will learn about the collaborative group work incorporated into a 300-level elective course in BioSciences. Specifically, attendees will learn about two examples of team-based projects that promote inquiry-based learning and brainstorm strategies to design group projects for their own courses.
