5 STEPS TO MAKING GROUP WORK - WORK!

Group work in college is inevitable. It will most likely happen many times during your college life. Group work can be a great experience, if you follow these simple steps you will be well on your way to getting the most out of your group work.


Step 1 - Choose Wisely

  • Your choice of group members should focus on who has the right skills to successfully complete the assignment.

  • The best people may not always be your roommates or friends.

Note: In some cases your instructor will assign groups.


Step 2 - Commit To The Group

  • Participate! Don’t expect to be carried along, do your part and meet deadlines.

  • Don’t dominate group discussions - give everyone a chance to contribute and be respectful of other ideas.


Step 3 - Get To Know Each Other

  • Exchange contact information and schedules right away!

  • Learn about group member’s strengths

Is someone good at writing? Research? Or is someone a Powerpoint expert? This information can help you divide up tasks.


Step 4 - Establish Group Rules

  • How often and where should group meetings take place?

Tip: The group should meet several times to review work, get updates and work on tasks together.

  • What will the communication process be? Email? Facebook? Blackboard?

  • What is the decision-making-process - will majority rule or does there need to be a full consensus?

  • Decide how conflict will be resolved and when the groups should get the instructor involved.


Step 5 - Determine Roles And Goals

  • Break the assignment into smaller tasks and divide the work equally

  • Specify who is doing what and include expectations and timelines

  • When deciding on deadlines - add in extra time for computer crashing, people geting sick and traffic jams.

  • Agree on a leader that will keep the group organized and on time.

  • someone should be assigned to edit the final assignment - this will reduce disconnect in the flow of content and writing styles.
