Group Work. Research Brief
Walker, Karen
Education Partnerships, Inc.
According to Johnson and Johnson, group work helps increase student retention and satisfaction, develops strong oral communication and social skills, as well as higher self-esteem (University of Minnesota, n.d.). Group work, when planned and implemented deliberately and thoughtfully helps students develop cognitive and leadership skills as well as a sense of responsibility, all of which are required in the contemporary work place. Learning goes into one's long-term memory when it is challenging, meaningful, and relates to the real world. When students are asked to solve genuine problems, they own the problem and will work diligently to solve it. Group work provides these indispensable experiences for students.
