Work in Small Groups


You'll find classes throughout Cascadia's curriculum that require you to work in groups on a variety of projects.

We believe that all students need to develop the ability to work effectively in small groups.  Here's why: 

  • Extensive research on teaching and learning show that students must know how to work and interact collaboratively to survive in a complex, interdependent and increasingly international world. 
  • Employers consistently tell us that in jobs of all kinds, the ability to communicate, solve problems, make decisions, and interact with diverse people and viewpoints in a group setting is critical to success in the workplace.

Teamwork furthers each of Cascadia's learning outcomes and prepares you for success wherever you work.
