This was a very good introduction to teams. I especially like the reflection questions. Not only does this promote learning from others but it allows the individuals to reflect on their own behavior while working as a team. Self reflection is something that is often missed in higher ed.

The “Working in Teams” piece was quite informative. The slide about establishing roles in a group to help maintain a balanced level of contribution within a group was the most eye-opening to me. Also, the slide discussing resolving conflicts was great.

This was a good tool to get the conversation started about teamwork.  I especially liked the student testimonials at the end of the presentation. As the student mentioned in a comment, it would have been helpful to see how the students interacted with this material.

This is a reply to Nancy's comment: The intent was to briefly introduce the topics, begin a discussion, and provide an opportunity for reflection. The goal is to help to prepare students to be successful in group projects. I look forward to the day when you begin to share your work on Merlot.

Good content, but format is not conducive to active learning. Content could be taken to an entirely new level using quality standards of instructional design.

Technical Remarks:

Tutorials are very passive learning.
