Abstract

Abstract: In an effort to engage online students interactively, distance-learning guides emphasize group-based instructional strategies and the use of Internet communication tools in online instruction. Although some of these guides include a general discussion of group development and facilitation strategies (see, for example, Palloff & Pratt, 2001, p.125), none provide a concise, step-by-step approach to group facilitation for instructors who may be unfamiliar with these strategies. Using Lacoursiere's model of group development, this article will present an overview of the application of group development models and group facilitation in online courses, one that can provide instructional designers and instructors a practical framework for maintaining meaningful interactivity and group cohesion in online learning.
