Let’s admit it, we’re always trying to stick with our friends when it comes to forming assignment groups, but things don’t always go as we wish. While we’re certainly willing to accept other course mates as our group members, there are times when communication barriers get in our way towards team efficiency.
This is often true when one or more of the group members are from different nations. From language barriers, cultural differences to simply different communication channels used (some members might not get used to checking their Whatsapp regularly), communication becomes increasingly difficult between group members.
This might affect not only the overall workflow, but also the quality of the completed assignment itself.
Other than having more frequent face-to-face discussions or directly calling the members, is there any other ways on resolving this kind of issues? Please share with us if you’ve got any tips!
