Understanding and Transcending Team Member Differences: A Felt-Experience Exercise
Dugal, Sanjiv S.; Eriksen, Matthew
Journal of Management Education, v28 n4 p492-508 2004
The felt-experience exercise is a form of cooperative learning. Participants are placed into dyads in which they interact with one another to realize and deepen their understanding of themselves, their partner, and the course content. Meaning is created through written reflection on personal experience and dialogue with one's partner. The understanding of one's self and one's partner is created through awareness of their differences. As well as providing a basic cooperative learning structure to be used in any course, the felt-experience exercise may be used as a diversity-training tool or to assist individuals or groups to understand and transcend conflict.
