Groupwork skills are key for most employers and pedagogically effective, according to JISC (2015). Several cohorts of students undertook roleplay as part of groupwork scenarios and analysed the processes associated with these discussions. Our student-led exercise encouraged students to use humour and creativity, resulting in a positive group experience, building confidence for forthcoming group work assessments.

We plan to give an overview of how this research and practice worked remotely in seven minutes.
