New Handout on Surviving Group Projects in College

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

Employers value applicants with group work skills precisely because, in the real world, few people work alone…. Your assigned partner┬ámay 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.
