If we are not some kind of anti-social, we will definitely do some things in collaboration with others. If you are a student, the chance of teamwork is even higher, since as students, we hang out, study, and even do exam and test in team for some occasion.
When we can choose our teammates, things seem to be much more enjoyable since we can work with people we like. But when we have no choice over who to team up with, teamwork can be a nightmare if the bond and harmony of the team is vague. Miscommunication, unequal workload and conflicts within team are common place if we are not with our dream team. However, as a matter of fact, most of the time we end up having to work with people we don’t expect. How can we cope with that? Will the scenario of a few person handling the majority of the workload while the majority of the team doing the minority always be the case?
Do not expect beyond the classroom give you the formula for successful group work, since there is no such things. However, the environment offered by the program can somehow enable you to share, open your heart and soul to collaborate and grow with others, and from which, you can find your own way to effective team working. We believe that whether you are young, enthusiastic and adventurous like Nemo, caring, insecure and overprotective as Marlin, or absent- minded and careless as Dory, you can still do wonder in team, when you know how ;)
