Course Description

Working in Teams

Course Description

Groups and teams are ubiquitous in our personal and professional lives. This course explores the processes and dynamics of teams, including individual responsibilities of team members. This is an interactive, discussion- and activity-intensive course. Theory and practice are woven together to facilitate your mastery of the small group experience in multiple contexts. Working in Teams develops your ability to collaborate effectively with others in order to adapt to contemporary problems that groups often face.

During this course you will participate in activities that teach you how to analyze different types of teams and the contexts in which they exist; doing so will improve (a) your understanding of whether and when group processes facilitate optimal individual- and group-level outcomes, and (b) your ability to develop and apply situation-appropriate decision making, problem solving, and conflict management skills.
