dc.description.abstract This study aims to find out what the perceptions of 3rd year Mathematics and Science student's teachers of the Caprivi College of Education are as regards group work. The study was conducted at the Caprivi College of Education, in Namibia. The research methodology draws heavily from the approach employed by both of Bennet, J. et al, (2001), Hewson and Hewson, (1989) and Penlington and Stoker, (1998). Thirty two student teachers in their first year of study as well as sixteen 3rd year student teachers were initially requested to respond to a free response questionnaire that contained twenty items. The responses from this questionnaire were used to generate areas of concern that the respondents found important (statements that were regularly emphasised by the respondents). These statements then formed the basis of the classroom group work related scenarios that were finally generated to test, in an interview setting, the perceptions of these student teachers. Six student teachers in the 3rd year were selected by purposive sampling to take part in the semi structured interview. Three of them were males and the other three were females. The interviews were transcribed and the responses (perceptions) were tabulated. These perceptions were then compared with the responses that were obtained via the validation process as well as proven theories of group work practices. The results from the interviews then formed the major areas of discussion of the results. The results amongst others showed that the perceptions that the majority of the student teachers' hold as regards various aspects considered important in group work, were in line with current international literature findings, as well as work done in this area in Namibia, Swarts (1999). en
