Educators in many disciplines recognize the value of incorporating group learning into their curriculum. Unfortunately, over 80% of instructors give modest, little or no support to students working in groups (Bolton, 1999). In many cases, this can lead to student frustration and resentment of group work. This will also reduce the amount of course content that students will retain from group projects. This workshop is designed to equip you, the instructor, with specific activities to help you guide your students through the stages of group development and the hurdles associated with each.
