Situation/Case Study:
TEACHER/COLLEAGUE ISSUE

Description:
On the last night of the semester when the graduate class was to turn in their thematic unit the male member of the collaborative team verbally explodes over the lack of work of the female member. He uses very defaming language and rants loudly his anger to the instructor. The female member had not yet arrived in the classroom. When she does arrive she is shocked to hear her partner so angry with her; the male had not expressed any of his dissatisfaction prior to the explosion in the classroom. The instructor questions how collaborative work can be accounted for so that such inequities aren't the finale to a project.
