Discuss about the Team Work for Excellent Communication.
The objective of this assignment was to work in a group and required us to develop a case study report based on the scenario. It’s my believe that this teamwork was useful in achieving the objectives we set out to make. The factors that contributed to this success are; aceepting general inputs from members, asking questions, giving ideas, and excellent communication.We had many discussions via various communication channels regarding our approach on the assignment.
Our team used multiple online tools such as Skype, wiki group, and Googledocs.
These online platforms provided us with opportunities to develop several online skills. Some of the skills developed completing this task include online communication, collaboration, creative thinking and critical thinking. This enabled my team to work efficiently.
Constructivist methods to teach are linked with insgighful learning, growth in critical, creative and thinking skills and increased learner confidence. Social constructivism theory provides that individuals absorb well when they participate in learning tasks with other people (Berkeley University of California, 2015).
Working as a group has many benefits. When a team works together, it allows participants share knowledge and information. The team also learn to generate meaning, and resolve challenges by cooperating with peers our peers using critical examination and thinking.This leads to developing a more in-depth knowledge of the things learned. There are equally as many challenges as benefits for teamwork through the means of online collaboration. Some of the limitations include physical distance, media time, setting tasks, organisation, as well as not knowing other team members. On the other hand, when these challenges are overcome, these are also vital skills to have for learning.
From my experience working in a team environment, has further developed my skills and thinking by being involved with online communication. This has allowed me to express my ideas more frequently. A strategy that I will use in the future is to communicate more with team members and to lead by example. What I found significant and meaningful which I can always utilize in the future is to commit to responsibilities, take more responsibility, trust is critical to a team’s success, having a clear purpose and to communicate more with team members. Also, supporting team members is essential. Every team member must understand their and learn how use it positively to the team’s success.Therefore, these factors help in creating an efficientan active team.
