10 Tips for Creating Effective Teams

Author: Lori Walker Subject: All Subjects Created: 2017-02-09
From The Author I created this toolkit for two reasons. First, it was the most requested topic to be addressed in the Developmental Education Faculty Certificate Program. Second, through my own work with students, I have found two consistent experiences: 1) They often have negative memories of teamwork associated with people on the team getting the same grade for unequal work, and 2) They have often experienced a lack of structure in previous teamwork experiences which left them frustrated with how to even begin working with one another. These handouts and activities are my attempt to resolve these issues and create a more successful and enjoyable experience for students. - Lori Walker
