Not sheepish, but individ-ewe-al

This is such a great comment, exactly the sorts of examples I was thinking of. More like work and less like school, definitely, especially since I'm mainly going to be teaching adults. And absolutely, not putting an undue burden on people's out of class time is key. Also having the instructor actively involved in managing the group seems much better than just throwing students together, especially younger / inexperienced students.
I completely love that computer science project, thanks so much for pointing to it! I mean, that's what I want, a realistic or even real-world task, where working together is actually necessary and not just arbitrarily dividing up a single task, and you need to work out how to deal with IP if you release or commercialize what you make. The code of conduct and (hopefully) mechanism for escalating if there are any serious issues looks helpful too.
The OU thing sounds like a good approach to peer feedback, which is one part of group work I'm excited about. Really good point about moderation; you need not just clear guidelines, but for someone in authority to screen or control comments.
