How to form teams?
Most college students do not have the knowledge and have not developed their capabilities to function effectively on a student team. Therefore, faculty members must work to establish a learning environment that supports effective student teams. Many of the challenges that occur when using student teams can most effectively be addressed at the beginning of the course. Here is when student teams can identify potential concerns, including possible leader and participant issues, and develop norms of behaviour through which these concerns can be addressed. Here is when the teacher can set out policies for addressing problems which may occur downstream. Here is when the teacher can lay out evaluation policies
