Using Personal Stories to Enhance the Team Member Experience

Team experience, Collaboration, Psychological Safety

As faculty, we have become acutely aware of the challenges of students’ experiences working in teams. They likely have had bad team experiences, however, employers continue to identify working effectively in diverse teams as an important competency for our students. The objective of this session is to provide an opportunity for faculty to experience first-hand a practice that allows students to more positively approach teamwork by developing a relationship with team members through personal stories and learning to value differences in team members in the initial forming stage of their teams. Following the activity, participants will share their experience and hear some of the comments and outcomes of students who participated in the activity.
