SINOPSIS

Recent emphasis on the use of teams in the engineering curriculum has increased interaction and collaborative aspects of the learning process for engineering students and faculty. However, a corresponding emphasis on preparation for students and faculty has not occurred. The transition from individual learning in a customized environment to learning in a group environment can be challenging, even in a homogeneous team atmosphere. This process is even more complex against a backdrop of diversity, including communication style and learning style differences. This article presents results from a series of interviews and focus groups of engineering faculty and students regarding the use of teams in their courses and the benefits and challenges they believe are a direct outcome of team-oriented approaches in engineering. The results reveal training deficiencies in effective practices for team-oriented activities, and large inconsistencies in the experiences of students across disciplines.
