Creating and Managing Effective Student Teams

There are many reasons to put students in teams – teaching them to work in teams, the learning benefits of collaboration, the diversity benefits of finding out other students’ perspectives, and the ability to provide a deeper level of feedback on the smaller number of assignments submitted by student teams are among them.
