PROJECT: GROUP THEORY
The course project aims at providing you an opportunity to implement your learning about group dynamics.
This hands-on part of our class enables you to enhance and develop your skills and techniques of group dynamics, helps you be more competent in an actual group process, and enables you to see the value of teamwork. Collaboratively, the team will work on becoming a team with proactive techniques, diverse ideas, and problem-solving skills. These skills are of great value in today’s workplace.
