In the excitement of starting a group assignment, it can be easy to overlook how you’re going to work together as a team.

Below are 3 tips that might help smooth the path to a successful group assignment.  At your first group meeting, all group members should:

  • Swap contact details and times each person is available, then set realistic goals together
  • Decide group roles and assignment writing roles based on the skills of your team members
  • Decide what the process is if someone is not performing as agreed

For more help on getting started with group assignments, check out the Group Projects and Assignment Preparation pages on the Library website.

Meeting on campus? The Library has bookable spaces that your group can use. Alternatively, you can meet online in Microsoft Teams—if you need help with Teams, more information and support is available here.
