Collaborating with others is an essential part of your learning at university and your instructors will regularly assign group work to help you develop this important skill. Collaborative learning can help you develop your time management, communication, critical thinking, and interpersonal skills. It can help you develop good leadership and team-building skills and make you more aware of EDI (equity, diversity, and inclusion). Whether group work is assigned or used as a study strategy, it is important to know what your responsibilities are.
This group work rubric will help you understand the collaborative learning skills you can develop and what your group work responsibilities are.
