Group Work

Group work develops a range of skills that are highly valued by employers: communication, teamwork and interpersonal skills. It also teaches you the basics of project management. However, students often have mixed feelings about being asked to work in a group. Group work offers a lot of potential benefits, but it can also present quite a few challenges! Most negative group work experiences are caused by differences in:

  • communication styles
  • work styles
  • expectations within the group. 

Studywise provides quite a few resources aimed at helping students to work better in groups. Click on the Studywise link  and enter your OneID and password to be taken to these resources.
