Do you use group projects in your IS course? Do interpersonal issues in your student groups drive you crazy? Whilst students often find group work frustrating, working in groups “better simulates the work environment in which graduates are expected to perform” according to the IS 2009 curriculum guidelines for IS programs (Topi et al, 2009). As lecturers we are responsible to teach not only the content but also to equip students with the necessary skills to apply the content successfully and improve their workplace readiness. This workshop will show you how to use team role preferences to improve group dynamics to reduce group work frustration for both students and lecturers.
