Real World Teaming in an Engineering Programming CourseVarious formats of real world teaming have been explored in engineering courses.Engineering courses have varied from project oriented to capstone design to courses thattarget first year students. Laboratory oriented courses have also extensively utilized realworld teaming. The formation of teams has varied from self-selected to instructorselected to computer software team formation tool selected. Outside of pairprogramming, very little is studied or reported on benefits of students working onprogramming assignment together. In an earlier study, a model for integrating real worldteaming in a programming course was developed. This study seeks to provide theimplementation results of a follow-up study of integrating real world teaming in aprogramming course. This study will provide results of a survey on real world teamingadministered to students in the programming course. These students will participate in afocus group involving questions about real world teaming in a programming course. Theresults of this study will be used to improve the model for effectively integrating realworld teaming in an engineering programming course.
