Group discussions

In this video Dr Adeyinke Adewale talks about the importance of working effectively in group work and what's expecting from each student.

Many students are surprised to find that group work is a key part of their studies in the UK. This might involve working with other students to prepare and deliver a presentation, or to write a report together. Although tutors will explain the process to you, most of the time you’ll be working without the tutor’s direct supervision.

In this video, Dr Adeyinke  Adewale  discusses some of the ways in which you’ll be expected to  engage  actively in these contexts. He gives advice on  effective  group work, and emphasises the value of  assignments  in which students from different cultures and backgrounds bring different perspectives and ideas.
