Wow, that ship engineering example is fantastic! It's as close to a realistic project as you can get in a student context, and obviously designing a warship is something that IRL requires group collaboration, it's not a problem that's trivial to someone who happens to be working beyond the average level of the class.

There's something about the not pulling weight thing; I'm not denying that it happens, but it's also partly an illusion, because you know exactly how much work you put in, but not exactly how much your classmates have done, so you tend to underestimate their contribution. I think part of the skill of group work, which should be taught, is correcting for that bias so you can actually judge whether people are contributing.

Any thoughts about how to make education more introvert-friendly? I think interacting with people is somewhat unavoidable, but I can see it's worse if you're working in groups.
