Language: English

Description: This course discusses the stages of team development, the impact that norms, cohesiveness, and size has on teams, and how to deal with team conflict. As a team grows and develops they will go through five distinct stages of development: forming, storming, norming, performing, and adjourning (or reforming). During the first stages of development, teams will create their own informally agreed-upon standards that regulate team behavior, which leads to cohesiveness. Both the size of the team and how they resolve conflict has an impact on overall team effectiveness.

Instructor Description: This class is an independent-study course.  Students will have all the resources needed to successfully complete the course within the online material.  A student helpdesk is available for technical support during the course enrollment.
