Learning Is a Team Sport ... Analysis of a Model for Interactions in Computer Science Education
This paper introduces Computer Science students’ need to learn team interaction skills. A model that emphasizes the importance of structuring team interactions for effectiveness in Computer Science education by ensuring that key variables are present, is then offered. Findings regarding an analysis of this model in terms of positive interdependence, individual accountability, interpersonal and small-team skills, promotive interaction and team processing is further detailed. This is done by indicating to what extent, and how, educators ensured that the key variables were implemented. The paper finally offers conclusions, including a summary and an indication of the importance of this research.
