Marvin Bartel, instructorWhy work in Groups?
Many of our assignments are done collaboratively. Learning from each other is a natural way to learn. For most of us it is an enjoyable socially interactive way to learn and clarify what we know and are able to do. While instructors can present materials and assignments, learning is a student activity based on the ability to put knowledge, ideas, and skills into productive use. Group interaction is a proven way for us to test our thinking, our work, and our skills.
What is this form for?
Most things about group work are enjoyable and helpful. Students who complain about group assignments feel some students fail to pull their own weight in the group. Below are examples of ways you are asked to provide assessment information so the instructor can evaluate your efforts when working in groups. By looking at this form ahead of time, you can work to receive good assessments from your peers.
