New Handout on Surviving Group Projects in College

I posted a new handout with tips on surviving group projects in college.

Employers value applicants who can work in groups. Most college students say they hate group work, but in the real world, few people work alone.

Your assigned partner for a class project may be slow to respond because he or she is dealing with a family crisis, temporarily overwhelmed, or working a night shift. (On the other hand, maybe your partner is just slacking off.)

What can you do to increase your chances of having a successful group project?

  1. Start early.
  2. Nudge a slow partner with helpful specifics.
  3. Document your efforts.
  4. Embrace the opportunity to demonstrate your teamwork skills.
