Abstract [en]

Previous teaching experiences have led us to believe that group norm is a powerful instrument to encourage individual motivation, good study habits and goals. Students with weaker performance can benefit from collaborating with more motivated students. Students that have a shallow understanding of the subject can benefit from discussing with students who have a deeper understanding. In this study, we investigate how students perceive learning in teams, if they experience that working in a group helps them learn more efficiently. Our results form a basis for further improvements of group based learning as a teaching method and gives directions for further studies.
