A vast array of popular and scholarly literature exists on every facet of effective team skills, but it is not finding its way into most classrooms. Consequently, the majority of students have bad teamwork experiences, despite the very high importance employers place on students acquiring good team skills. This unacceptable state of affairs has been targeted through online facilities that have been implemented (and often created) at QUT. These facilities operate with a view to structuring and assessing team activities in university courses around well-researched and widely valued principles of team practice, but without an overwhelming workload for the teacher. The paper focuses particularly on the new TeamWorker web-based system that helps students and teachers manage team processes through various scheduled activities online and in class. Use of TeamWorker has simplified team creation, team administration, and identification and rectification of dysfunctional teams.
