The best material I have seen on the management of group projects and
teaching students how to work within groups (as well as teaching profs how
to design them properly) is coming out of work being done in technical
communication and project management. I suggest you look at some recent
texts in technical communication as well as some of the work on
collaboration--Ede and Lunsford's work, for example. Amanda Goldrick-Jones
and I are putting some of this material together for a project we are
working on. Once we have the material together I'll send you some specific
references. BUT remind me in a month or so or I will forget.
