Everyone Believes They Know How to Work in a Group

In this blogger series on group work, the Office of Distance Education takes a look at how group work should be managed.

Guidelines and rules should promote interdependence rather than independent work within the group.

Required reporting allows the group to see problems early in the process.

Groups should have guidelines for behavior that all in the group agree upon.

Group work must fit the skills and abilities of the group.

Groups must feel that the work is divided fairly among members and that all activities support the product.

The group must own their guidelines and division of labor.

Group decisions must be supported by the members of the group.

Full participation is a requirement.
