Three steps to success: 1. Get to know each other 2. Clarify the task 3. Set ground rules Group Brainstorm What are the issues youve previously experienced in completing groupwork? Three steps to success

1. Get to know each other 2. Clarify the task 3. Set ground rules Meeting in a circle is great for group dynamics The first meeting is vital

Activity Split into three groups. Group 1): Ideas for how to get to know each other. Group 2): What can we do to clarify the task? Group 3): What ground rules for the group are important? Step 1: Getting to know your group Open and positive attitude; set the tone Introductions: Identify special interests and skills Maybe try an icebreaker (e.g. must find 10 things everyone has in common with each other not related to work)

Get everyone talking Master list of contact details (Hand-out 1) Step 2: Clarifying the task Task Analysis: Analyse the brief What is the expected final output? Final deadline?

Brainstorming Written summary of task analysis Divide the work amongst different people Task manager appointed to ensure people working independently Task Summary Title: As a team, prepare and present a fifteen minute powerpoint presentation to argue for the motion that The compulsory teaching of Irish in primary schools is a threat to inclusive education.

hand-out 2 Making meetings work Agenda (see Hand-out 3) Possible roles: Chair/Facilitator Record/note-taker (see Hand-out 4)

Time-keeper Task Manager Deadline points Agreed actions People can be so difficult Tina Tom Tina is frequently late for

group meetings. When she gets there she is often on her phone and just nods with what everyone else says. She doesnt volunteer to do work and has yet to produce anything for the group. Tom does all the emailing and texting to sort group meetings. At the meetings he takes the lead and

tends to push his ideas forward and argues with everyone elses ideas. He tells people to do different tasks as if he is the boss. Potential Problems People related problems Process related problems Members who dominate

No agreed ground rules Members who dont contribute No agendas for meetings Talking not listening No specific roles or tasks Ideas dismissed or ridiculed No set deadlines

No-one initiating discussion No chairperson for meetings Members isolated or ignored Meetings start or run late Lack of leadership No meeting records kept

Unreliable members No review of progress Get by with a little help. If problems cannot be resolved within the group, talk to your lecturer/tutor Further resources
