I posted a new handout with tips on surviving group projects in college.
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?
- Start early.
- Nudge a slow partner with helpful specifics.
- Document your efforts.
- Embrace the opportunity to demonstrate your teamwork skills.
