Sammanfattning

Studies have shown that group work offers great
possibilities for deeper learning compared to some more
traditional teaching formats 1, but it can also lead to some new problems such as free-riding. Different aspects of group psychology and behaviour as well as impropriate group sizes can be used to explain why and how free-riding develops in groups.
With careful course planning teachers can seriously discourage students from free-riding. Especially the grading system should be carefully chosen not to promote free-riding but to stimulate deeper learning
