Key Components of Online Group Projects: Faculty Perceptions
Wade, Christine E.; Cameron, Bruce A.; Morgan, Kari; Williams, Karen C.
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v17 n1 p33-41 2016
In order to better understand faculty perceptions of group work, a survey was deployed to online teaching instructors. Results suggest that most faculty find student socialization (e.g., being supportive, caring about each other), communication, reliability, and dependability important in the group process. However, very few faculty rated the development of deeper interpersonal relationships as very important. Finally, most faculty said it was important for group members to have a role, though most suggested group roles were decided upon by group members. Implications for group project implementation are discussed.
