In the workplace, one's performance is often evaluated based on skills and competencies job-specific behaviours defined by an observable set of actions and activities and measured by the application of knowledge, skills, and abilities. CDO252 Multidisciplinary Teamwork aims to empower students with the essential skills and competencies required for effective teamwork and the confidence to apply them, taking into consideration multidisciplinary work contexts, team roles, and influences like culture and personality.
Designed with the experiential learning cycle in mind (concrete experience, reflective observation, abstract conceptualisation, and active experimentation), the course would involve students in case studies, self-reflection, role-play, providing and receiving peer critique, as well as in active experimentation as they engage in full-cycle learning. Through the various learning activities, students will have opportunities to experience, think about and use the relevant skills and competencies required for effective multidisciplinary teamwork. Assessment will be in the form of a quiz, class participation, an individual assignment and a group-based assignment.
At the end of the course, students will be able to analyse and apply the skills and competencies for effective participation in multidisciplinary teamwork.
