Teamwork

In our mentor sessions we talked a lot about teamwork…

Here is a software – CATME – that helps students to ‘function effectively in teams’ and ‘support facultys as they manage their students team experiences’.

That’s what the firm says about their product:

CATME SMARTER Teamwork is a system of secure, web-based tools that enable instructors to implement best practices in managing student teams.  The tools and training are supported by the literature on teamwork and training, along with independent empirical research.  They are described in detail on the “CATME Tools” tab.

The CATME system enhances team learning by teaching students how to contribute effectively to teamwork and creating accountability for team-member contributions.  The system facilitates communication among teammates and between students and their instructor.  This helps student teams have the best chance of being successful so that students and instructors have positive and meaningful team learning experiences.

It would be interesting to know as to how far the software improves student experience – and helps instructors manage teams.
