Self Expression in Technical Courses: Making It Happen
Amadio, William J.
American Journal of Business Education, v2 n5 p7-14 2009
This paper examines how Team Learning allows students to express themselves through their work. I define expression to include taking ownership of one's work, i.e. working through self-motivation rather than through the dictates of a teacher, and participating in a community of workers. This participation includes working with colleagues on projects of interest to the community, submitting one's work to the scrutiny of the team and the larger community, and evaluating colleagues' work in the same manner. I present the results of my use of Team Learning in four computer programming classes.
