Teaming

| Developed by Dr. Mary (Molly) Kern, Narendra Paul Loomba Department of Management, Baruch College, CUNY; and Dr. Minna Logemann, Communication, Baruch College, CUNY

Teaming presents a set of online resources created to support the work of teaming, which Professors Kern and Logemann define as “when a group of people with different abilities, talents, experiences, and backgrounds come together for a shared purpose,” in various disciplines and situations.

The Teaming website is openly available on our Blogs@Baruch platform. Screenshot of the Teaming home page It features a variety of resources for effective teaming, including slides and videos. There are recommendations for further engagement with the topic including videos, articles, and podcasts. There are also relevant course recommendations for Baruch students, as well as guidance for faculty on how to integrate the site and its content into their teaching.

Though the faculty behind Teaming come from the fields of Organizational Psychology and Communication Studies, it is applicable to group work across disciplines as well as in non-educational contexts. The student-facing materials can be used in whole or in part, and there is a Quick Start Guide to help faculty choose and use the resources effectively.
