Course Teams. Understanding Course Teams: Organization and Dynamics (Report No. 62). Workshops and Seminars on Team Work: 1978-1991 (Report No. 63). Development of a Course Team (Report No. 65).
The three reports combined here examine a workshop/seminar consultancy program for college faculty on the dynamics of course teams and group process in course development. The consultancy program focused on the hidden influences of groups and the relationship between individual and institutional change. These three reports: (1) examine the experiences of the group dynamics workshop that was conducted with an Open University French course team in October of 1991; (2) trace what was learned between 1978 and 1991 when attempting to apply process focused consultancy to more educational activities; and (3) discuss the dynamics of the course team and how it contributed to the development of a team and the progress of work. Included are examples of the projection of anxieties, difficulties in thinking through the implications of actions, and inhibitions about decisions involving risk or change. Also included are a list of workshops and seminars held from 1978 through 1991; a list of internal papers and their focus; and course team meeting notes. (GLR)
