    1. Cooperative Learning:Teamwork for Engineering Classrooms Ideas from Karl A. Smith

    2. Team ManagementReflections • Think about your most successful/effective team project experience • What were the characteristics of the team? • What were the conditions? • Have you had experiences with teams that were ineffective or frustrating? • What made the team ineffective? • What could you have done to improve the team?

    3. High-Performing Cooperative members team Cooperative Traditional Types of Teams Performance Level Pseudo Types of Teams

    4. Traditional Classroom Learning Teams Team members: • Believe they will be evaluated and rewarded as individuals, not as a team • Interact primarily to clarify how assignments are to be done • Have no motivation to teach what they know to their teammates • May seek a free ride on the efforts of teammates • Or may feel exploited and do less

    5. Cooperative Learning Teams • Have a goal of maximizing all members’ learning • Hold themselves accountable for doing high quality work • Work face-to-face to produce joint work-products • Promote success through helping, sharing, assisting, explaining, and encouraging • Provide both academic and personal support based on a commitment to and caring about each other • Use teamwork skills to coordinate their efforts and achieve their goals • Share responsibility for providing leadership • Analyze how effectively they are achieving their goals • Emphasize continual improvement of the teamwork process

    6. High-performance Cooperative Learning Team • Meets all the expectations of the cooperative learning team • Outperforms all reasonable expectations, given its membership • High level of commitment • Mutual concern for each other’s personal growth • Achieve high-performance and also have lots of fun

    7. What Makes Cooperative Learning Work? • Positive interdependence • Face-to-face interaction • Individual accountability/personal responsibility • Teamwork skills • Group processing

    8. Danger signs • High achiever paired with procrastinator • Procrastinator becomes less and less involved • High achiever becomes frustrated • Procrastinator learns little and gets a low final grade (team participation rating is a multiplier)

    9. Antidote to Disengagement • Engagement! • Insist on being a full member of the team

    10. Course Grading • Not on a curve • You are not competing with your classmates • If you all do well, you will all get good grades • Cooperation is rewarded, not penalized
