University Studies in Teams.
Educational Development: Information on Research and Development in Post-Secondary Education, 1975:7
In response to the growing dissatisfaction of students in the late 1960's to the traditional educational system, where the student felt forced into a role of dependency and passive consumption, the Swedish Commission on University Education suggested an instructional system of supervised student teams as a supplement to regular instruction. The team system was thought to reduce a number of the problems facing the new mass university. This report on the completed project describes the design, execution, and timetables of the main experiment, the results of the experimental project, an inventory and analysis of other experiments with supervised teams, and evaluation of experiments with work and examination in teams in training courses for future psychologists.
