Recent trends in business have pointed to teamwork as an important tool in business success and this has prompted organizations to start looking for teamwork skills in their new employees. They expect that their new employees at least possess the basic understanding of why teamwork skills are important to their organization. As a result, the business environment has put pressure on institutions of higher education to prepare students to be effective team players1,2,3,4. For this reason, accreditation institutions at the collegiate level such as the Accounting Education Change Commission (AECC) and the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), are requiring higher education institutions to introduce teamwork activities into their curriculums5,6. In response to this demand, institutions of higher education are developing methodologies for introducing teamwork in their classrooms for enhancing the process of learning.
