    Learning in Groups: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    Larry K. Michaelsen, Professor of Management, University of Central Missouri

    When you use learning groups, do your students complain about such things as:

    • Having to do more than their fair share of the work?

    • Not being able to keep their group working on the assigned task?
    • One or two members dominating the group and others feeling left out?

    In this session, Larry Michaelsen will talk about how to deal with these and other issues to improve learning in groups and teams.
