2 Group Interaction in Collaborative Discussions Reflecting back on the discussion with my learning team, the intent of the discussion was very clear, and most of my team members contributed valuable feedback about the two learning activities. Overall I feel that the members of my group were not fully prepared for the discussion and that we all could have done better. According to “Maps of India” (2016), “When the topic is given, understand the topic carefully. If it is not clear initially or you have some doubt regarding the topic, ask immediately. Clarity of the topic is of utmost importance to ensure that you perform well in the GD.” (At the Group Discussion). In my group discussion, not all members participated in the discussion. However, the members who did participated equally. During our group discussion, some of us did have different points of view, and I feel that each member openly expressed their different viewpoints. Our group was somewhat productive in our discussion. However, I do think that had everyone participated and contributed more to the discussion we could have been more productive. The time our group was given to discuss our topics I feel was not used efficiently. We should have engaged in conversation earlier in the week, and managed our time to discuss better. Strategies that can be used in future collaborative discussions to increase productivity and outcomes are having a discussion in the beginning on how important it is that everyone participates in the discussion, and contributes equally. McQuerrey (2016), “One of the best ways to increase productivity through team effectiveness is for team members to create a system in which each person is held individually accountable by the group.” (Accountability).

However, this was my first time participating in a learning team and I feel more confident in participating in collaborative discussions in the future. I know now the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
