Skills for collaborating
Working successfully with others requires practical as well as personal skills. One of the main advantages of working with others is that you can benefit from the skills of others that you may not have yourself, and share your own skills. In this activity you are going to solve a puzzle and explore some of the typical challenges of working in a group. Nine students have been instructed by their tutor to work in three groups of three to perform a course task. Your task is to decide on the best way to form the three groups taking into account the students' personalities and different skills, so that they complement each other.
Think about the personalities and skills of the different students and decide who should be in each group. Move each student into an appropriate group. One member of each group has already been selected. When you have solved the puzzle, read the feedback.
