    Group Projects: Issues and Practices in Computer Graphics Technology

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    Group projects are an important aspect of the unique and evolving discipline of Computer Graphics technology. In the workforce students of computer graphics technology are required to communicate and work effectively with art directors, computer science, business personnel, peers and the public. Simulating the “real life” experience within the group project is an optimal goal for the educator.[Andres 2000] Many issues face the professor when incorporating a group project. The evaluation process can be ambiguous, coordination among students with busy schedules and the distribution of skills within a student group is often mismatched. Below two professors explore some pros and cons implementing group projects in a portfolio building course and an advanced web course.
