Teamwork & Communication

level of course unit

first cycle, Bachelor

Learning outcomes of course unit

Students differentiate between different phases in teamwork, suggest the predominant problem structures and analyze necessary courses of action based on specific example situations. They keep in mind the specific management roles, their implications and development in the different phases of conflict and deduce alternative courses of action over time using a discursive approach between experience-based learning and reflection. In doing this, they establish a number of courses of action, which they then illustrate in a presentation and apply in groups.

course contents

The course combines experience-based learning through outdoor and indoor tasks with short presentations and reflection. Students follow the development of a team from when it is formed, through setting targets and dealing with risks and conflict to identifying the team’s characteristics. Team leadership, organizing cooperation, social cohesion, team phases over time as well as the allocation of roles lead to a greater understanding of (un)successful parameters for teamwork. Outdoor tasks are reflected upon and integrated into a complete model.
