Abstract

This panel convenes four educators, each from different institutions and each with experience managing group projects. Their expertise spans topics including: peer assessment and peer evaluation; entrepreneurship; transdisciplinarity; internationalisation; inclusivity; social values; educational technology and tools; feedback and feed-forward; peer rating; free-riders; as well as blended learning; and post-pandemic online discourse. They reflect on the delight of seeing students collaborate to deliver meaningful projects as well as the challenges posed by disengaged students. They also explore a common theme of discordance inherent to teamwork and systems to support student communities.
