For this first DQ, you have a choice of two. Please post to only one as your Initial, researched response and then feel free to respond to both for participation credit.
Note: the second choice has a link attached. Shimazoe and Aldrich’s paper from our Electronic Reserved Reading list is a great first source for this response. And look, the citation is already prepared for you to cut and paste.
Week 3: Discussion Question #1 – Choose one
- What are the important components of group building? How do you ensure that all members of each group are participating collaboratively and not just cooperatively?
