During this time of remote teaching and learning, group work and peer learning are more important than ever for enabling students to feel a sense of belonging to the learning communities on their courses.
- If appropriate, set up Groups on your course to allow smaller groups of students to work together.
- When creating Groups, enable tools that will allow your students to interact with each other via their Blackboard course, for example, the Email, File sharing, Collaborate Ultra tool and Discussion Forum.
- Wikis allow students to collaborate to build an online collection of pages, a mini-website if you will. As the teacher, you can see who did what when and assess the whole group and individual contributions.
