Working in groups and teams

By the end of your degree, it is expected that you will have the skills to establish a rapport and build collaborative relationships with individuals and groups. Engaging in group work is one way to develop these skills.

Group work can offer rich learning experiences as you are exposed to diverse perspectives.

To get the most from group work, its useful to know about the roles you tend to adopt in group work situations as we tend to adopt certain roles. For example some individuals may take on leadership roles and others may like to organise operational aspects.

There are seven main roles we tend to adopt and understanding your preferred role and that of others can help your group identify individual strengths and ways to engage with each other based on your preferred roles.
