Experiential Exercise in Team Formation in the Capstone: Providing Students With the Information to Make Good Team Choices

“The exercise, conducted over one or two class meetings, allows students to learn about well-balanced team construction, present themselves to their classmates, interview each other, and choose who they would like to work with without the restrictions of seat proximity or prior connection. Results show students perceived that their teams were more available for meetings and exhibited more cohesiveness and higher performance than previous project teams, and strongly preferred this method.” (p.1)
