Usher Writing


Day 13

When students work together on a project, they learn much more effectively than when they do the project alone.

Some contend that one can learn more effectively in a group. Others argue that one can learn effectively alone without others. If asked, both groups would present compelling arguments to corroborate their assertions. For the following reasons, I believe that one can learn more effectively in a group. First, as one’s knowledge is limited, one can learn from others; second, one can learn interpersonal skills in a group.

First, as our experience and knowledge are limited, chances are we need the assistance of others in a project. I was on a science project in high school. The assignment of our group was selecting a science topic, conducting an experiment, and summarizing the result in a project report. I was assigned to making graphs of the experimental results. Unfortunately, my knowledge of using Excel functions to draw graphs was rather limited. I struggled for two days and finally asked other members of the team for assistance. One guy gave me a quick training course of the Excel, which solved all my problems of graphing. This example demonstrates how you can proceed with a project more effectively by learning from others.

Second, one can learn interpersonal skills in a project, which is one of the most important skills required when one works in the corporate environment. I am a first year mechanical engineer in a car manufacturing company. I was assigned to a project team to develop a new hybrid car. The first and the most important thing I learned was that I needed to deal with people internally and externally. I needed to learn how to interact with my boss, colleagues internally and customers and suppliers externally. Knowing people and letting others know me were instrumental to performing my job. This example illustrates that one can learn how to be associated with others in a group situation.

It is true that if you are fully familiar with the subject matter, you may feel comfortable to do everything on you own. However, when the nature of a project becomes more complicated, you may encounter situations where you need assistance from others. First, as one’s knowledge is limited, one can learn from others; second, one can learn interpersonal skills in a group. For these reasons, my strong contention is that one can learn more efficiently and effectively with others in a group. This lends truth to the adage in my language that three heads are better than one in handling a problem. (410 words)
