Professors Don't Understand These 5 Things When They Assign Group Projects

This semester more than any other, I have been assigned so many group projects. And yes it is easier to finish a big assignment with multiple people but professors do not understand that group projects can be harder than an individual project.

1. Getting everyone’s schedules to work together is challenging.

From 18 credits, to jobs, to people who commute, and personal issues.

2. By senior year you know who you work well with.

So when professors assign groups, and your friends are in your class, it gets frustrating.

3. When a professor assigns multiple different group projects with different assigned groups it is hard to keep track.

Each group should be the same so it is easier to keep track.

4. Time management

Trying to balance all of the individual projects in a class and then all of the group projects can be really challenging.

5. Meeting outside of class

It is much easier to finish a group project when given time in class to work with your group

So professors, next time when assigning a group project, be flexible so your students are able to find time to work together with what best fits their schedules.

Here are a few ideas to celebrate the day:

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.
