This Feels Like Cheating! Teaching Teamwork: Interdependency and Collaboration While Test Taking in the College Classroom

View File

21st century employers expect employees to work effectively within a team environment. Colleges are expected to educate students in teams to prepare for this, yet there is no clear norm of social interdependence, cooperation and collaboration in most college classrooms. Instead, even in Schools of Business where AACSB standards clearly recommend the development of team skills, most instructors simply assign group work and hope students will learn from this experience. This paper describes an approach to teaching teamwork in the college classroom via an exam procedure that requires students practice interdependency and collaboration in order to get a good grade.
