Good practice guides and tip sheets have been developed to support quality in both curriculum design and teaching practice. Good practice guides provide a pedagogical overview and tip sheets provide you with practical strategies and ideas for implementation.
Links to group-related resources are provided below.
When using FLO, you will be working with users, groups and groupings.
Users are individual people in the topic. Both students and staff are users in a topic.
A group is a collection of users. For example, a group named 'Tutorial 01' will include all of the students who registered for Tutorial 01. It is used when you are working with some, but not all of the users in a topic.
A grouping is a collection of groups. For example, a grouping named 'Tutorial Groups' may include the groups Tutorial 01, Tutorial 02 and Tutorial 03. It is used when you are working with some, but not all of the groups in a topic.
Types of groups and groupings
There are 2 categories of groups in FLO:
Groups that you create in FLO – these are listed in the FLO group manager as User created groups
Groups that are based on student registration into timetabled teaching sessions (lectures, tutorials, workshops) during enrolment – these are listed in FLO group manager as Student Two groups (Note: Membership of these groups cannot be changed in FLO).
Common Student Two groups:
Seminar / Workshop / Lab
Topic groups (when using a shared FLO site there will be a group for each topic shared into the site).
There are a different ways to create a group, depending on what your needs are.
