Group work can be an amazing opportunity for students to learn together in a one-to-one capacity allowing for peer learning and the creation of new knowledge. Working in teams is helpful for future job opportunities, it allows you to speak in an interview about a real scenario and the learning that you took from it. It also can be used to showcase how you operate in a group and still have responsibility for your individual work.
This session aims to help you make the most out of any upcoming group projects or presentations you will have in university life, by making you aware of the key aspects of group work to enable you to make conscious, well-educated decisions. These key aspects include preparation, communication, organisation, conflict and reflection. This session will also cover some extremely useful digital tools you can use for increasing efficiency while doing group work!
