Team projects expose students to team dynamics, deadlines and problem-solving techniques, all aspects employees deal with in the workforce.
Companies and communities rely on teamwork to achieve success, and they are seeking graduates who can work successfully on a team. Projects that are extended in duration offer a better vehicle and provide a richer context in which subject matter can be learned and practiced. Team project-based learning challenges students to put knowledge into practice and exposes them to team dynamics, deadlines and problem-solving.
