Group Work: How to Use Groups Effectively
Burke, Alison
Journal of Effective Teaching, v11 n2 p87-95 2011
Many students cringe and groan when told that they will need to work in a group. However, group work has been found to be good for students and good for teachers. Employers want college graduates to have developed teamwork skills. Additionally, students who participate in collaborative learning get better grades, are more satisfied with their education, and are more likely to remain in college. This paper will discuss the use of group work in higher education.
