The Use of Pre-Group Instruction to Improve Student Collaboration
Snyder, Lisa Gueldenzoph
Journal of Applied Research for Business Instruction, v8 n1 2010
The emphasis on the importance of collaborative skill is evident at nearly all levels of education. In higher education, teamwork and group skills are critical elements in a business student's training. To be successful in the business world, students must be able to work well in teams. Group work can be a successful learning experience if students are given the tools they need to become effective team members. To that end, this paper suggests techniques for teaching effective teamwork skills. First, an analysis of current research on student perceptions of group work is provided. Then suggestions for teaching teamwork skills are outlined. Finally, procedures for assessing individual performance are described.
