- Who cares about groupwork?
- Tempone, Irene; Gregory, Janet; Tyson, Trevor
- This is a story from the School of Business at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia. It derives from the pressures on staff to commit to groupwork in the face of significant student discontent with group experiences. The authors reflect on an instance of their own groupwork experience to provide possible insights into ways to enhance their students’ experience. We discover some significant similarities and differences between our own experience and our observation of student groups, which has increased our empathy for the difficulties the students encounter when completing group tasks.
