MAL 6005 - Group Dynamics and Leadership

This course will focus on the theories and practices of effective group and team functioning. Models of group development will be compared and contrasted. Teams, as distinct from groups, will also be an area of focus. Specific group dynamics resulting from the tensions or inherent paradoxes of group membership will be both discussed and experienced as part of the expedition component of this course. Students will have an opportunity to both identify and practice specific leadership actions that help resolve group or team dilemmas. The development of group/team facilitation skills will be emphasized. 2 credit(s)
