How to Build Better Student Teams in Experiential Learning

by | Jun 13, 2024 | Webinars

Building Better Experiential Learning Teams

Building experiential learning teams is one of the most time-consuming elements of running an EL course. In this webinar, Roger McCarty, the longtime Director of Experiential Learning at BYU, BYU Hawaii, and now Ensign College, shares his project scoring methodology for matching students into their preferred projects at very large scale.

While project ranking is the industry standard, and supported in EduSourced, the project scoring method discussed by Roger is also available in EduSourced. Our project bidding feature allows program faculty or staff to share a list of available projects with students, who then score then for preference, and EduSourced’s TeamBuilder feature provides a sleek interface for allocating students into project teams based on their preferences. With these tools, building optimized experiential learning teams is easy and efficient.

Coming summer of 2024 is a fully automated team building tool based on your custom parameters! Build teams that suit your needs and take what previously took hours and complete it with one click! Fill out the demo form below to learn more.
