Not only are the benefits considerable to the students, I find that even
though the group structure may take some effort from me initially, as the
semester goes on, the class actually begins to almost run itself. My time
can be more profitably spent guiding the process. Even time spent on
grading papers is reduced--the groups have already taken care of some of
the kinds of things I used to have to do myself.

Practice makes perfect--or perfectly awful.
It depends on what you practice.
