Teaching Teamwork through Coteaching in the Business Classroom
Kliegl, Julie A.; Weaver, Kari D.
Business and Professional Communication Quarterly, v77 n2 p204-216 Jun 2014
Business educators recognize the importance of developing teamwork as an employability skill. However, current methods used to teach teamwork have been met with mixed results from both students and educators. This article integrates research on the importance of teamwork, team development processes, and coteaching through examining a case study wherein coteaching was used as a means of conveying teamwork concepts to students. Coteaching is an alternate approach to teaching teamwork skills. In this case, the core competencies of shared values, complementary expertise, and the willingness to experiment were critical to forming and developing a functional teaching partnership.
