No group work in school is not just like in the real work world

I feel like my teachers always emphasized the importance of group work but kind of threw us to the wolves to figure out how to do it, especially when we are all supposed to be equal players with no manager to oversee the final product. Can you recommend any resources for how to do effective, professional group work among peers?

Interesting take on group work completed during classes. Can we change group work to be more like the real world?

How do you

  • hold students accountable? Can a student be fired?
  • is there a group manager?
  • are their clearly defined roles in the work?
