What is a study team?
While your instructor plans and facilitates your learning in weekly
classes, it is the work of the study team that brings learning to life.
It is a time to review class content, complete study team assignments,
reflect upon new learning, and raise questions for discussion.
What are the advantages of a study team?
Working with colleagues to improve teaching and learning can be an
extremely rewarding experience. Study teams form around interests and
needs in order to encourage and support risk-taking, provide assistance
in collaborating successfully to complete the program outcomes, and
accomplish the specific objectives of each individual learning module.
How does a study team work?
Students form their own study team with a minimum of three and a
maximum of six members. The team decides when and where to meet each
week. Study teams meet for three to four hours per week, depending on
program requirements. Each week, your instructor will assign your study
team a task to complete. In addition, there are a variety of team
building, reflecting, and problem-solving activities.
