Lessons learnt from the Group Working: Students’ Perceptions

signokayagreeyesconcept_thumb[4]

As we discussed during last Operations Research class, I’d like to ask each student about his/her perception and opinion about the in-class group working. Each student has to answer this question:

What you have learnt from your Group Working on Transportation Models?

Answer should as a comment on this post. Leave your Full Name and university number.

  1. Group projects can promote important intellectual and social skills and help to prepare students for a work world in which teamwork and collaboration are increasingly the norm.

    Benefits for students

    Group projects can help students develop a host of skills that are increasingly important in the professional world, group projects properly structured, group projects can reinforce skills that are relevant to both group and individual work, including the ability to:

    • Break complex tasks into parts and steps
    • Plan and manage time
    • Refine understanding through discussion and explanation
    • Give and receive feedback on performance
    • Challenge assumptions
    • Develop stronger communication skills.

    Group projects can also help students develop skills specific to collaborative efforts, allowing students to…
    – Tackle more complex problems than they could on their own.
    – Delegate roles and responsibilities.
    – Share diverse perspectives.
    – Pool knowledge and skills.
    – Receive social support and encouragement to take risks.
    – Develop new approaches to resolving differences.
    – Establish a shared identity with other group members.
    – Develop their own voice and perspectives in relation to peers.

    Benefits for instructors
    Faculty can often assign more complex, authentic problems to groups of students than they could to individuals. Group work also introduces more unpredictability in teaching, since groups may approach tasks and solve problems in novel, interesting ways. This can be refreshing for instructors. Additionally, group assignments can be useful when there are a limited number of viable project topics to distribute among students. And they can reduce the number of final products instructors have to grade
