On the flipside, many students express a distaste for working in groups.
The University of Arizona is implementing innovative ways to help students build this in-demand skill, starting with

"Build the Skill: Collaboration" is developed in partnership with the Education Design Lab
and universities across the
globe that are helping students develop the skills employers are looking for.
