Breaking the isolation: Online group assignments

S Adam, M Coetzee, IJC Lubbe

Abstract


The Covid-19 pandemic forced us to go online in a hurry whilst maintaining constructive alignment, enforce learning, and be student-centred, whilst simultaneously developing 21st century graduate attributes and critical thinking skills. Whilst interactive learning and collaborative is frequently cited as a good practice even in the online environment, this learning approach is not without challenges either for the student or the facilitator.
