Students will be placed in teams with 3 or 4 students per team to perform much of their project work. Team members will receive a common grade on the project work. If all teams seem to be functioning smoothly membership will remain intact for the entire semester. If there is mutually agreeable swaps across teams, that can be done but only with instructor approval. Students are otherwise encouraged to work through team problems. This page might be helpful for that. The instructor will meet with teams regularly during the in class office hours period and get some sense of team function. If there are irreconcilable differences between team members the instructor will make some adjustment, but do so only reluctantly and after other attempts at reconciliation have failed.
I retired in summer 2010. Before that I was CIO and Associate Dean for eLearning in the College of Business and an Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I've done some teaching since I retired.
