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.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
