What are the key ingredients for a successful, long-term group assignment? What does it take to pull this off in a classroom or research setting? How might teaming look different across different disciplines, and what is to be gained from taking a team-based approach to learning?

Join a distinguished panel of Berkeley faculty from Integrative Biology, Geography, and the Haas School of Business as they share their experiences and insights, talk about nuts and bolts (project management, team composition, grading and assessment), and expound on the benefits of teaming for student learning.


  • Robert Full (Integrative Biology)
  • Sara Beckman (Haas School of Business)
  • Seth Lunine (Geography, American Cultures Engaged Scholarship)
  • Moderator: Sean Burns (Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarship)

This is a forum for discussion, so come with questions and your own ideas. Snacks and refreshments will be provided, and participants are welcome to bring their lunch. Registration is not required, but we appreciate RSVPs so we know how many people to expect.


Registration is unavailable. Registration closed on November 5, 2017 - 5:00pm.
