Winter 2001 LInC Reflections on Working as a Team

Participants were asked: How did you work as a team to complete the education and technology simulation?

  • We used the questioning that we had looked at earlier.
  • Each of us worked on a different angle, then we sent our data to one person.
  • We met live in-person and had online chats as well.
  • We had online chats during the evenings. That was helpful.
  • Sharing the task was a relief. Some members did the research, some synthesized data, others worked on packaging and presenting the report.

How can you improve your group work process for when you start your project?

  • Identify an outline: where we are, where we want to go, who will research each part.
  • Lots of planning, being very organized is helpful in the EL atmosphere.
  • Make sure you really like the topic you are working on.
  • Know where we are going before we get there.
  • Know your teams strengths and weaknesses.
  • We could have brainstormed in the chat earlier.
  • More collaboration and a division of labor.
