Learning outcomes of course unit

The students can distinguish between different team phases. They are able to identify predominant problem structures and can analyze necessary courses of action on the basis of concrete example situations. They take into account specific management roles, their implications and developments in the various conflict phases and derive alternative courses of action over time through a discursive approach between experiential learning and reflection. In doing so, they develop procedures which they present in presentations and implement in groups. The students can deal constructively with feedback and criticism and are able to reflect strengths and weaknesses.

course contents

The course combines experiential learning through outdoor and indoor parts with stimulating lectures and reflection. The students see the development of teams in their formations, target perspectives and risks of conflicts and their manifestations. Team leadership, the organization of cooperation and social coherence, temporal phases and the assignment and assessment of roles and their parameters lead to a deeper understanding of success and failure parameters. Outdoor components are reflected and integrated into an overall model.
