Enhancing Team Building

Project Leader: Jude Hirsch
Professor, Outdoor Education

iPods enhance team building by providing iNformation to iNdividuals that is iNtegrated into group iNitiative tasks and problem solving experiences. In this very unique project, iPods are used to develop and test iPod-enhanced group development activities which involve approximately 24 students per year and focus on group effectiveness, communication, and respect for diversity. Data is collected using video analysis, focus group interviews, and a survey.
