Choi, Youngsoo; Ro, Heejung
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v9 n4 p303-312 4th Qtr 2012
The development of positive attitudes in team-based work is important in management education. This study investigates hospitality students' attitudes toward group projects by examining instructional factors and team problems. Specifically, we examine how the students' perceptions of project appropriateness, instructors' support, and evaluation fairness influence their attitudes toward group projects. Also the effect of students' team problems on their attitudes toward group projects is examined. This study has highlighted the criticality of the instructor's role in group project management for achieving a high level of positive attitudes toward group projects among the hospitality management students.
