Award-Winning Faculty Series: Enhancing Student Learning through Group Projects: Applying Chamber Music Coaching Techniques to Any Classroom Setting with Jean Martin-Williams
Education Center, The Georgia Museum of Art
12:30 pm – 2:30 pm
Dr. Jean Martin-Williams is Josiah Meigs Distinguished Professor in the Hodgson School of Music and Director of the CTL Lilly Teaching Fellows. Martin-Williams has found that, in the classroom, successful group assignments result in students who not only understand the material, but can apply and retain the material. Challenges of good group assignments include how to set up groups, how to assess the groups, and how to ensure that all students participate in a meaningful way.
