This is such an awesomely helpful and comprehensive answer, thank you. It makes a lot of sense to be explicit about the ways that education is artificial, even when you're supposed to be learning professional skills. And I really like your point 5, building in coordination into actual class time, and acknowledging that people have lives outside class and don't just all live in the same dorm with no commitments beyond study.

Consistent groups working on lots of projects for 8-12 weeks is what I'm aiming for, but that's not always going to be feasible. I think that model has loads of advantages over getting people to do a one-off large project as a group.

The thing of creating space to try things and take risks sounds like generally awesome educational practice, not just a good way of running group work. I really love your description of the sorts of approaches that facilitate that, though.
