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. This course aims to empower students with the essential skills and competencies required for effective teamwork and the confidence to apply them, taking into consideration cross-functional 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), learning in the course will revolve around case studies, self-reflection, role-play, providing and receiving peer critique, as well as active experimentation as students 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 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 teamwork.
