Group-work is increasingly common in higher education and develops essential graduate skills in collaboration, communication and problem solving, skills commonly sought by employers (Daly et al, 2015). However, the group work process can be challenging for students (Chang & Brickman, 2018; Wilson et al, 2018), and staff face the challenge of supporting groups remotely in the pivot to online and blended learning. Building on the outcomes of previous projects (Graham & Pringle Barnes, 2020) and the University group work policy (2018), we co-created a toolkit on effective group work with students. The toolkit will focus on practical activities to support group work, such as allocating group roles, improving communication and encouraging group reflection. The toolkit equips staff with resources to help address the challenges of group work in their own teaching context, as well as resources to support students to work collaboratively.
