Group work is an essential element in media production courses and an established method for teaching and assessing media production. This study was carried out over 3 years and was inspired by a cohort level 4 students experiencing problems whilst working in production team. It examines the benefits and limitations of using Belbin’s Team-Role Self-Perception Inventory to form production teams for assessing level 4 media production students and also allocating production roles within those teams. Conclusions are drawn from the experiences of the students in the groups and the observations of the tutor. Implications of using the Belbin Team-Role Self-Perception Inventory are discussed and new practise suggested for media production tutors involved in assessing group project work.
