Industry uses multi-disciplinary teams to complete projects. Developing effective teamworking skills is therefore an essential component of the university based engineering experience so that new graduates are ready for the world of work. We examine the various components of team based project work at Southampton and how we can be more effective in enhancing student performance in this area.

We examine the performance of cohorts of students as they progress through group work in years 2, 3 and 4. Our initial finding is that a performance based group assignment in year 3 is a better strategy and helps them work better in the random assignment in year 4

Abstract

Industry uses multi-disciplinary teams to complete projects. Developing effective teamworking skills is therefore an essential component of the university based engineering experience so that new graduates are ready for the world of work. We examine the various components of team based project work at Southampton and how we can be more effective in enhancing student performance in this area. One interesting question is how students are assigned to groups considering random selection and selecting groups of comparable academic level. We examine the performance of cohorts of students as they progress through group work in years 2, 3 and 4. Our initial finding is that a performance based group assignment in year 3 is a better strategy and helps them work better in the random assignment in year 4
