About Collaborate UTA
Texas Core objectives and employer surveys all show that the ability to work in teams is one of the most important marketable, or career and life, skills students can acquire in college, and bring to an internship or a job. Collaboration is one of UTA’s core values as stated in UT Arlington’s Strategic Plan, 2020 Bold Solutions, Global Impact.
Collaborate UTA, provides undergraduate students with a competitive edge by assessing and enhancing a key skill that employers desire: teamwork.
UTA’s QEP, Collaborate UTA, will enhance and assess teamwork through the creation of Professional Learning Communities, the creation and implementation of an open access Student Teamwork Guide and companion Instructor Guide, and the curation of lesson plans created by student Peer Academic Leaders.
Through the creation of a Student Teamwork Guide, development of Professional Learning Communities, and a Seed Grant Program to promote research, faculty and staff are working to develop innovative and effective ways to enhance and assess teamwork in the classroom and prepare our students for success both during, and after their time at UT Arlington.
