Team Building for the Classroom and Workplace

  • Date: Friday, May 8, 2009
    Location: Eberly 120/Crimson Event Center, Folger
    Time: 9:00 a.m.–2:30 p.m. (breakfast at 8:30 a.m.)
    Facilitator: Jennifer C. Jones

    Join us for an interactive and productive day of team building exploration and initiatives!

    Why do we ask our students to participate in so much group work? Why do committees succeed—or fail? Teamwork is ubiquitous in the workplace because of the innovative results that teams produce and the need to encourage information sharing through positive relationships. Jen Jones will share her team building activity repertoire that you’re welcome to adopt for your classroom or work environment. Join us for a fun day of interpersonal interaction and self-discovery that will provide you with materials and experience to better design team activities for your classroom or facilitate the work you do in committees. 

    This workshop is open to faculty and administrators. The workshop is limited to thirty participants, so register soon!

    Please RSVP to Sharon Aikins in the Center for Teaching Excellence at Sharon.Aikins@iup.edu.
