Team Building Activities in the Educational Setting: A Manual.
Turk, Randall L.; McFadden, Jorena; Stoss, Penny; Dreiling, Eileen
This study identified and described appropriate training activities to help educators develop the skills necessary to participate in a team setting. The qualitative research paradigm allowed researchers to collect data in the contextual setting. Researchers conducted interviews and reviewed documents related to team building activities, noting appropriateness of the activities. Data from interviews and document reviews, as well as information from different respondents and investigators, were triangulated to identify pertinent team building activities. The research resulted in a team-building manual with four sections, each of which focuses on a component of team building (fundamental teaming skills, communication, relationships, and leadership and collaboration). Each section of the manual contains a theoretical base, an expert analysis, and the instructions for conducting each team building activity. Teaming activities provide opportunities for skill building and process learning. Collaboration, reflection for self-improvement and team- building, and dialogue are some of the skills that can be learned from the activities. A synopsis of the manual is contained in the appendix.
