Troika Consulting – Adaptation for Class Community Building
Get students used to supporting each other and helping each other without always turning to an expert or teacher to solve problems; also useful for quick problem-solving.
You can use this any time during the semester to encourage students to self-reflect on challenges they’re facing and benefit from their colleagues’ input. At the beginning of the semester it could be a challenge related to learning online last semester; in the middle of the semester while working on a large research paper, they could discuss challenges in that paper for example.
None from the teacher; you can ask students ahead of time to bring a challenge they are facing with them (or do another activity immediately before it like Spiral Journal where you ask them to reflect on their challenges).
For online, the action of ‘person turning their back’ can be done by the student turning off their video and muting.
