MOOC GROUP WORK AND BEING HEARD


Some of your peers have not experienced the dynamics of group work within their previous educational training.  Now that you’re enrolled in a MOOC you will quickly find out that online discussions and group work are a staple for course delivery.  You may feel at times that your ideas are not being vetted further and the group is just actioning the proposal of the most aggressive team member. 

Here are some tips on being heard within your group.

Participation – if you are not an active participant to the team then your team members will not put as much weight to your discussions, so stay involved and contribute throughout the entire journey of the course.  You may not have the knowledge to lead a specific task but make yourself available to support others.

Research – if you are trying to recommend an option or direction for the team then do not rely on solely your personal opinion and work to gather supporting evidence to justify your decision points.  Having additional research available may help to solidify a concept for your team members and further strengthening your view.

Relevance – think about real world references to help express your viewpoint in order to make your opinion more tangible for other team members.
