Study on Construction of Student Work Groups in China’s Colleges Based on Dissipative Structure Theory

Lin ZHU, Changsong LI


This paper aims to study the student work groups in China’s colleges on the basis of the dissipative structure theory. It attempts to analyze the features of development from the perspective of a dissipative system theory, take such measures as reducing entropy and increasing negative entropy to ensure the stability of system of the student work groups, and propose approaches to developing sustainable student work groups. The specific approaches include clarifying roles and responsibilities of workers, developing scientific mechanisms for assessment and rewards and penalty, designing rational mechanisms for personnel selection, building platforms for enhancing the overall quality of student work groups, improving their research capabilities, and promoting the process of being specialized and expertized.
