Guidelines for Groups

Aktualisiert: März 18

To have rules can be very useful in group work contexts. The following suggestions include some of the issues and starting points from which groups can be encouraged to agree their own set of rules


Have respect for each other. - Respect each other’s ideas - Respect the other group members - Don’t interrupt each other - Everyone’s opinion should count - Be honest with each other


All group members should do an equal amount of work. - Everyone should share the responsibility of the tasks - Don’t take over and don’t let others take over


Your group should have a common understanding of goals that need to be achieved. - Help each other to understand all concepts


Be open to compromise. - Be willing to cooperate with others on their ideas - Keep an open mind - Vote on disagreements


Effective communication. - Make sure everyone is able to be vocal about their ideas and problems - Give ideas no matter how “off” you may think they are - Listen effectively - Don’t be critical


Time management. - Attend and arrive on time to all group meetings - Be flexible about meeting times - Keep on task (limit talk about non-related events)


Be happy in the group you are in.
