Group Work


Group work is a collaborative process where you work alongside two or more other people to reach a shared objective, goal, or purpose. When done well, group work allows you to achieve far more than you could on your own.

Ideally, groups are made up of individuals with diverse skills, knowledge, and perspectives to complete projects or solve complex problems together; however, working with new perspectives and different people can come with its own challenges—so take the time to learn how to create a supportive, positive environment for your next group project!
