Students have introduced themselves and commented on the introductions of at least one other group. I have uploaded the reading for the case study as well as the questions connected with it. Students have chosen which question (out of 4) they would like to answer within their own groups.
I have explained to students that although in each group, a student is responsible for one of the questions, they are all responsible in critiquing each others' work and providing suggestions on how the responses could be improved. Furthermore, each student will have to assess the work of one other group.
Students have begun the reading and will start composing their responses this week.
I have to create a rubric by which I will assess their work, and which they can use to assess each other. I hope to have it posted within the next few days.
I am looking forward to reading the responses. I am hoping that students will communicate well with each other using ePortfolio. I am allowing some class time to make sure that students are touching base and I have left some comments to groups who are missing either introductions, question assignments or both.
