Your text states, “Your communication abilities–including your skills in listening, speaking, and writing–are as important to your success as your technical skills”. (Ellis, 2015). Here in class and many times in the workplace we work and communicate in diverse settings.
Group dynamics bring to light diverse learning styles, personality types, and backgrounds all of which each individual brings different ideas or points of view to the table.
We all learn differently and take different approaches to the ways in which we choose to work and communicate. This can make working in groups challenging at times but I have always found working in groups to be extremely beneficial to learning in both the work and classroom settings because of the ideas and different critical thought processes that are exchanged.
There is never one right way to go about getting things done and sometimes an idea that someone else may propose may be something we may have never thought about on our own. The group environment definitely can provide for many learning opportunities for every learning style where all members can benefit.
