Groupwork role play
This workshop activity facilitates participants to practice their groupwork skills whilst negotiating a response to a given scenario. It provides the opportunity to plan and film responses to create more groupwork opportunities and discover new digital skills. The outputs of these could be edited into a more formal video should you wish to develop them into future teaching material, but consent would need to be gained from each participant for this.
There are 5 scenarios (one for each group of students) in the Group work skills MS Word document and one MS Word tutor guidance sheet.
● To practice groupwork skills
● To understand common reasons why groupwork projects fail
● To develop employability competencies
● To learn filming and editing techniques
