Successful Group Work: Using Cooperative Learning and Team-Based Learning in the Classroom
Grant-Vallone, E. J.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v21 n4 p99-121 2011
This research study examined student perceptions of group experiences in the classroom. The author used cooperative learning and team-based learning to focus on three characteristics that are critical for the success of groups: structure of activities, relationships of group members, and accountability of group members. Results indicated that students reported more favorably on these group experiences than on a "typical group experience" they had in the past. At the end of the semester, many students reported that group members communicated effectively, developed friendships, and took responsibility for the team project. Communication and group member relationships were related to project satisfaction. (Contains 4 tables.)
