Teaching method

This course is organised as an interactive experience and activity based training program. With the help of complex tasks, timed interaction activities combined with elements of surprise, classical outdoor training exercises, moderated feedback and reflection sessions, participants are taught the necessary conditions for effective teamwork.
The teaching methods are based on the principles of self-organised learning. The instructors define their roles in terms of Schein’s model of process consulting. They intervene by questioning the participants in a manner designed not only to examine their perspectives, but to introduce new perspectives and stimulate the group’s creative process. The responsibility for these process remains with the participants.
In the context of the learning environment, the students enjoy the opportunity to increase their observation, communication, co-operation, self-reflection, teamwork and management skills as well as their self-confidence.
In addition, the course offers the students the chance to network and develop sustainable work relationships at the start of their studies.
