Group Share

Group Share rooms are best for faculty who offer short periods of lecture and longer stretches of group work with or without wireless technology.

Flexibility between low tech and digital collaborative options is a highlight of the Group Share.

Students sit in pod-style groupings of 6-8 and each pod has its own whiteboard and monitor. Faculty and students are encouraged to circulate around the room ‘gallery style’ viewing other pod monitors, critiquing group work, or rotating through stations. Group Share classrooms support low tech practice and idea generation, but also allows students to connect their laptops to their group monitors and collaborate with digital tools. Monitors are programmed to let groups work independently or share their results with the class.

Group Share rooms support multiple teaching and learning strategies but are ideal for discussion sections or hybrid courses where class time is used for peer-based multi-modal group projects using technology.
