> Dear DANCE community,
> After a brief hiatus, we are pleased to be bringing you the next talk in the 
> DANCE talk series.  Miaomiao Wen, research data scientist at Coursera, will 
> be talking about teaming in team based MOOCs.  The talk will be held at 12pm 
> on October 31, 2016.  Hold this time!
> http://dance.cs.cmu.edu/talks/talk16.html
> This talk reports on dissertation research focused on support of productive 
> team formation in team-based MOOCs. The key idea is that students should have 
> the opportunity to interact meaningfully with the community before they are 
> assigned to teams. That discussion not only provides evidence of which 
> students would work well together, but also provides students with 
> significant insight into alternative task-relevant perspectives prior to 
> collaboration. A validation study demonstrates that this teaming procedure 
> increases team performance at a knowledge integration task by at least 3 
> standard deviations while also increasing the prevalence of positive 
> collaborative processes during collaboration
> The talk will be recorded and can be viewed on YouTube any time after October 
> 31.
> We hope to see many of you online on October 31.  The Google Hangout on the 
> air link will be available shortly.
> Best,
> Carolyn
