Full Session Description (one paragraph minimum):
With competition becoming the buzz word as an individual's worth is considered to be his/her individual attainment there is need to focus on the qualities that would make a person successful in life. A person does not compete in life with family or community members but works in groups and cooperates and collaborate. If groups are so important there in life of the individuals the education system must respond and foster group work and skills so that the students may lead a productive and effective life. In this paper, an attempt is made to briefly describe the terms `group`, and `group work’, its significance and the skills required to make group work successful and effective. Another related issue that arises in academic group work is that of assessment, the paper also relates to group work & assessments specifically peer & self assessment. This spirit of group work once developed in classrooms should be carried forward to international level and students from across the countries may form groups and work collaboratively to engage in deep learning, developing understanding of different cultures.
