Faculty Perceptions of Online Group Work
Morgan, Kari; Williams, Karen C.; Cameron, Bruce A.; Wade, Christine E.
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v15 n4 p37-41 2014
Focus group interviews with university instructors (tenured, tenure-track, and adjunct) were conducted to explore perceptions of online group work. Results indicated that instructors believe that group work is an essential tool for students' future lives and, therefore, a key component of the online classroom. They believe that professional development should be offered to distance instructors to encourage the use of best practice teaching (including group work) in online courses. Specific strategies for the successful implementation of online group projects were shared. Implications for practice related to faculty development, supporting outstanding teachers, and successful implementation of online group projects are presented.
