Team Building (Outdoor Training)

level of course unit

second cycle, Master

Learning outcomes of course unit

Students are able to distinguish between the different team phases connected to the prevailing problematic structures and are able to analyse necessary actions with reference to real-world examples. They consider specific roles within a team, their implications and developments in the various team-building phases and during the course deduce alternative courses of action through discursive approaches in their learning experiences and reflection. They use this to construct robust approaches, which they present and implement in groups.

course contents

This course combines experience-based learning through outdoor and indoor components with keynote speeches and reflection. Students will gain insight into the development of teams in their composition, targets and risks. The concepts of team leadership, organization of team-work and social coherence, phases over time as well as the allocation and assessment of roles and their parameters will contribute to an in-depth understanding of success and failure parameters. Above all potential conflicts will be addressed for specific team situations and the causes and solutions will be analysed in common situations. Outdoor components will be reflected upon and integrated into the overall model.
