Ugh! A Group Project!
Kevin Maifeld, Patrick Kelsey, Rachel Shane, Anne Frost

From the AAAE standards, “students need to understand concepts of leadership and group dynamics in order to understand how to adapt to the ever-changing environments in which they will work.” This panel discussion will address the concept of student collaboration and group dynamics in the arts administration classroom. It will begin with a presentation of AAAE-membership wide survey results reporting on how the membership is currently utilizing group work and the related pros and cons. Additionally, an analysis will be conducted to investigate how group work leads to achievement of project goals, as well as addressing the learning outcomes which appear in course syllabi. The panelists will highlight, more specifically, how their programs approach teaching collaboration in the face-to-face and online classroom. With these case studies, the panelists will offer a cross-section of the body of knowledge related to teaching collaboration. Lastly, the panel will conclude with a discussion of how we connect theory with practice in order to lead students to “understand planning as a people-intensive, collaborative learning process” and move from being able to “describe the collaboration” process to being actively engaged students in the learning process as is described in the AAAE Graduate Standards.
