Helping students develop group work skills

Students really dislike group work when (a) they are not sure how the group should work and (b) when some group members get a free ride (Hall & Buzzwell, 2013).

One strategy we can use to improve students’ experience of group work is to make desirable group work traits more explicit to our seminar group. Here is a quick self-evaluation list students can use to reflect on their own group behaviours (Jaques & Salmon, 231:2007).

It is a handy resource in first year units before, during and after group work activities as metacognitive awareness about working meaningfully with others grows with practice.
