Why is group work important?
Collaboration and cooperation allow you to learn from and benefit your peers by pooling expertise. In groupwork, you will learn more about yourself as well as the topic. Working successfully with others towards a common goal is a skill of value throughout your working life.
How do we do it?
Figure out what everyone in the group is good at, so that each person can play to their strengths. Brainstorm the task, establish clearly what needs to be done, create a timeline for completion and then meet in person or online regularly to share progress, knowledge and resources.
