Turning Student Groups into Effective Teams
This approach uses an adapted version of team based learning to provide an opportunity to students effectively to build teamwork skills on an individual level and improve performance at a group level throughout the semester.
The activities: one workshop at the beginning of the semester on team formation and contract development, two workshops at 1/3 and 2/3 semester on development of teamwork skills and how to manage and develop solutions for tricky team dynamics, and a formative evaluation on the progress towards effective team functioning. Peer and self assessment are performed in teams at 1/2 semester and end-of-semester to assess individual performance.
