Last post, I asked you to talk about the criteria and process you used to set up your student groups. This time, now several weeks in, I’d like you to reflect upon how well the group set-ups you created are working. In cases where the group is working well, what do you think you did well in your selection? In cases in which a group is not working well, what do you think is wrong and how might you have anticipated and avoided this outcome by your selection process (or maybe by some other means)?
How have your group dynamics been working?
