Try not to procrastinate. Resist the urge to put work off. Make small progress and stay in touch.
  • Meet regularly. Consider a quick text on your group chat about progress every couple of days. Ideally, have real conversations over video any week you’re working together. Check out tools you have access to as University students.
  • Set a purpose for meetings in advance.
  • Take notes in a shared document so you can all contribute and follow along.
  • Keep the video visible on your computer screen during meetings. It’ll help you see your teammates' expressions and stay connected to each other.
  • Check on one another and ask for backup. If someone has been absent from your meetings or chat, ask them directly if they are still able to participate in the project. If you aren’t getting responses within a day or two, let your instructor know.
