We are supporting a working group on group work this semester. The following information is available on this:
This project is looking at the advantages and disadvantages of group work used in Mathematics degree programmes especially in relation to students with Asperger’s Syndrome.
Our aim is to build a community of academics that use group work for assessment and developing graduates’ skills. We realise that students with Asperger’s Syndrome may have difficulties participating in group work thus hindering them from accessing the benefits particularly in terms of graduate / employability skills development.
Our first meeting will be held a the University of Bath on Tuesday 13th March from 11am – 3.30pm approx. There will an opportunity for all involved to share their thoughts and current practices.
Please contact Noel-Ann Bradshaw (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in attending a meeting or contributing to this work.
