Abstract

Research indicates that engaging students in authentic collaborative problem solving activities can lead to increased learning and persistence in STEM. A major piece of these activities is the task. This paper describes the process of creating guidelines and using them to design three engineering tasks that support collaboration between undergraduate students. This process led to a four-step framework that can be used to design future tasks.
