Summary Australian universities commonly cite "teamwork" as a graduate attribute and an integral part of their set of flexible and transferable skills suitable for different types of employment. This paper raises concerns as to whether teamwork as experienced in the university education system can claim to achieve the imparting of team skills. Pedagogically, learning through team work may be a useful educational tool however when the concept of 'teamwork' is explored a number of inconsistencies arise in the tertiary environment. The outcomes derived from team work do not generally satisfy the criteria for effective and efficient teamwork. However, it is suggested that to utilise teamwork as a learning tool for a graduate attribute the assessment criteria should take into consideration how the team worked together--the team dynamics.
