Group work is a very different experience for every student. There will be easy times, and times where you wish that you had a different group. Whatever the situation, it is almost inevitable that you will have to do a group project at some point during your educational journey. We thought that it would be helpful to create a document for students with 5 Do’s and Dont’s when it comes to group work. These tips come from experienced University students who have successfully navigated group work using these suggestions.
We have also designed a document for professors with 8 ideas on how group work can be a more positive and stress free experience for students. We hope you find either one or both of these resources useful when it comes time to either participate in a group project, or oversee a group project in class.
