This paper discusses the progress made in an enhancement project completed at two Universities in the United Kingdom. It is reported that whilst teamworking is valued by employers, its inclusion is less well received by learners themselves [2,14,25]. The project is an example of contributing student pedagogy [9]. The work began as a project completed by a placement student as part of a university’s’ funded project [BLINDED]. The work explores learners’ perceptions and experiences of teamworking before and as part of taught courses. These views have been intercalated into an evolving set of guidelines that have been used to inform further enhancements. These guidelines were written to enable learners to develop their own teamworking agreements to set out expected behaviors for working in the team. Whilst a work in progress, the approach and outcomes will be of interest to others engaged in the delivery and enhancement of student teamwork within computing related programmes and potentially other disciplines.
