TLRP: Developing group work in everyday classrooms: an introduction to the special issue
This Special Issue is designed to give an outlet to recent and substantive research on group work in classrooms, drawing from lead researchers from a number of different countries. The Issue is timely in terms of educational policy and practice. In a number of countries, educational reforms have been introduced with the intention of raising educational standards. Recommendations for group work have figured in policies on the implementation of curricula in classrooms, but these are not generally informed by evidence on effective group work, as seen in papers in this volume. The Issue is timely because, despite research evidence supportingg roup work, many teachers and students have uncertainties and difficulties with group work that make it unproductive.
