InSITE: Ground Rules in Team Projects

Janice Whatley’s talk titled Ground Rules in Team Projects was based on her PhD. She has created a computer system to automate parts of the process of deciding on “ground rules” when students are to start group work. The students answer a poll on which ground rules they find useful for their group, and based on the answers of the students in the group, a set of rules is suggested. The students concluded that it was useful to have a discussion on group rules early on, but it is a bit unclear for me whether the use of the computer system was a critical factor.
