The Department of Management is pleased to invite you to our upcoming Speaker Series presentation, where we bring notable scholars to campus to share their work on topics of interest to faculty.

The Department is excited to welcome Dr. Matthew Ohland from Purdue University, who will present an overview and tutorial on the CATME System, a web-based tool supporting criteria-based team formation and peer evaluation for effective management of student teams.

All who use teamwork in their classes or are considering incorporating teamwork into their classes are encouraged to attend this presentation. Team composition affects the success of students and teams in cooperative learning and project-based team environments. Using appropriate criteria when assigning students to teams should result in improved learning experiences. The CATME system was developed by Dr. Ohland and his colleagues to make the team assignment process simpler and more effective.

Dr. Ohland is a distinguished scholar and award-winning teacher in the School of Engineering Education at Purdue University. He earned his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Florida and is the Principal Investigator or Co-Principal Investigator of over $11.6 million in NSF-sponsored research. Dr. Ohland is the recipient of numerous teaching and service awards and honors. His research interests target peer evaluation and team formation; expanding the use of active and collaborative learning in the engineering curriculum, and longitudinal studies of student persistence and progression.

Please plan to join us for Dr. Ohland’s presentation, which is certain to be of interest to faculty members from across the University.
