American culture values individualism and personalized recognition is expected. Yet, at the professional level, group work is required, and teams are seen as the epitome of efficiency. While we recognize the need for students to learn team dynamics, they struggle to find purpose and meaning in assigned group projects.

Come explore an original activity that can help your students discover how groups are advantageous for accomplishing work.
