How you studied in the past or at school might not be working as well for you now that you are at MTU. Learning is a life-long process and we develop new strategies and habits along the way that help us to develop our learning skills.
Why not have a look at our blog post about how learning is college is different from learning in school?
Getting Started with Groupwork
If you have a team project to complete, you might find this video on getting started with groupwork useful. The video poses questions in three key areas: the purpose of groupwork, what groupwork can entail and how we can go about completing group tasks effectively. You will be invited to brainstorm ideas in these areas and to think critically about effective ways to work in teams.
It’s recommended that that you watch this video and complete the short tasks in your project team, but you can also complete it individually if you would like to refine your thinking about groupwork.
If you would like to think further about the content of this video or discuss it with the members of your group, you can access and download the slides referred to here.
We would really appreciate your feedback on this video. Please take a moment to let us know your thoughts by completing this very short form.
