@Milkninja222 @Decal21  I agree that being organised and flexible can be really beneficial in group work! Smiley Happy

@WheresMySquishy I agree! I think that honesty can be super important not just with getting your point acroos but if you ever need to ask your group for help on a section or if the group organisation is unclear.

With communication, I feel like having everyone supervise other people's parts and constant feedback can make a group project feel more cohesive and less like a bunch of stuck-together pieces.

A challenge I've faced more in uni is organising in-person meet ups. Schedules sometimes just don't want to align, and I've frequently been in group projects where I've never ended up seeing some of the group members in person!

Thanks for an engaging chat tonight everyone! 

I'm going to log off now. But I'll check back in another day and read the rest (and spam everyone with high fives Smiley Tongue )

 

Have a good night everyone!

@katurian 

 

I sympathise with that experience all too well hahahha. It can be frustrating wanting to have everyone available for meetings and gauge how everyone is doing.

What is the greatest challenge you have had in a group?

 

haha the greatest challenge in a group i had was at uni. We were doing an oral presentation, and we couldn't present it on the day because one group member

a. didn't write his part

b. didn't send his work to us/the tutor for the hurdle part of the assessment

c. didn't turn up on the day! Smiley LOL

what a disaster! Luckily the tutor knew what was going on so we could present on another day, but jeez! Definitely highlighted the importance of communication and keeping up to date with everything!

 

See you next time @Jess1-RO and @Bee ! Have great night! Heart

@katurian you're so right! it's so much easier to get stuff done in person but so hard to arrange times! i sometimes end up doing a poll with groups to make it easier!

What is the greatest challenge you have had in a group?

Definitely trying to get everyone to pull their weight. I am usually pretty happy with my group except for one or two people who scrape by and it can really feel bad submitting something when one section looks like it was done in a night. I think the only way to avoid this would be early starts and meet often with clear plans for what you want to do for your section each week. If you can motivate them early it can definitely be surprising how much better the end result will be.
