    The focus of this paper is to examine how a creative approach to setting and managing group work projects can offer students more and wider learning experiences than those which individual written pieces of work or time constrained examinations are generally able to provide. The paper also explores how this approach offers creative ways of meeting both internally set learning outcomes of modules, and externally set guidelines, for example in delivering key skills. The findings identify the main benefits to students and teaching staff along with the main managerial challenges faced by both. The paper concludes with an exploration of the implications of these findings in light of the proposed introduction of student Progress Files.
