Developing meaningful tasks in study groups [May 2, 2011, 1:25 p.m.]
Tasks are the central feature of study groups on the P2PU platform. Constructing a good task is crucial to the peer learning process. Tasks should have a clear goal in mind and should be sequential throughout the learning process. A task can be as big or as small and last as long as you like - it can be a planned discussion for one day, a piece of writing constructed over a week, a project that lasts for a few weeks, or a month-long endeavour that everyone works on.
We welcome your ideas, questions and concerns about creating workable and meaningful tasks in your study groups.
