Group projects are lauded for their ability to teach students various skills important to professional work, including communication, management, and planning. But not all group work is successful. In some cases, members of a group may put in less work or no work at all. This week, we read a summary of literature from social psychology on this topic and discuss strategies to combat this phenomenon.
