Transparent and Data Driven Team Formation for Class Projects
The class exercise-based interactive session walks through a three-step team formation process: (1) class-wide identification of project team success factors to generate a survey that all students complete, (2) distribution of all collected data to all students and students ranking their top teammate options, and (3) in-class team formation based on first two steps. The process supports students’ project understanding, identifying team success factors, gaining awareness of their own and others knowledge, skills, and abilities, and increasing teammate accountability. We will share resources and are open to hearing ideas to improve the process.
