Haley Scholars Spring 2013 Reading Groups
Last week, one of our long-term contributors, Phillip L., noted that "Leaders of successful organizations are developing the un-tapped
creative juices of once top-down organizations and encouraging
collaborative peer-to-peer teams within the corporate structure." That comment relates to a recent discussion some of us were having about "group work."
What is one positive or noteworthy habit that you have recently noticed in academic contexts associated with "collaborative peer-to-peer teams" (or with group work)? That is to say, we have collected some responses about the negative habits of collaborative work, which necessarily read like short sketches of "when group work goes bad." So we're curious about processes or regular or habitual moments when group work goes well.
In particular, we are interested in what's one notable activity or element that seems to always be in place when the experience of working collaboratively goes well.
