Many professors now find that they are part of committees, teams and projects where participants work together to prepare new materials, courses, and programs for Algonquin Students.
This section is still in development; we are fortunate to have several faculty volunteers to share expertise in this area, so revisit this site in the fall.
In the meantime, here are several links to excellent external sites focusing on teambuilding:
This Learning Guide for Working in Teams from the University of Southern Australia has useful tips on starting teams, contributing effectively to a team, task and process roles within teams, and troubleshooting with students in teams, as well as links to other articles.
This site contains reprints of many good newsletter articles from the Office of Personnel Management of the U.S. federal government. These articles cover such topics as skills, knowledge and attitudes for effective team participation, getting started with teams, enhancing team performance, and different methods for measuring team performance.
This U.K. site (A Team Building Directory) contains very useful information about teams and provides links to resources containing many suggestions for team-building activities. Thanks to Dana Lennox, Police Foundations.
The Canadian Management Centre web site is particularly rich in resources for faculty who are taking a leadership role in committees and projects. Thanks again to Dana Lennox from Police Foundations.
