Unit Two focuses on the structures and supports teams need to accomplish their goals. Members of those teams will be better able to contribute in a meaningful way to the success of the team by learning about how teams are developed, team roles, and assessing the effectiveness of the team and it's members in terms of achieving team goals. Team members will also learn the skills needed to facilitate and support the work of the group.

  2. Understand how groups develop to be able to address members' needs at each stage of group development.
  3. Acquire skills and strategies for facilitating learning teams, such as forming agreements, using purpose and nonpurpose, managing challenging situations, and assessing team effectiveness and efficiency.
  4. Develop strategies for assessing learning team members' contributions, the team's effectiveness, and the results of the team's work.
