We will use a variety of teaching methods including case studies, group exercises (role play, etc.), working on participants’ examples, feedback, reflection and discussion, exchange of experience.

Participation in the course will allow you to get the learning outcomes that will be valuable in complicity in research teams during present and future scientific activity – as a team member, leader or creator.

The key learning outcomes are as follows: Be able to identify and analyze factors driving group dynamics, increase understanding of the importance of roles, norms and structure in groups, be able to identify sources of conflicts, know how to solve conflicts constructively.

The acquired skills will prepare you for the phenomena and challenges of working in teams, co-creating and using the potential of team to achieve success in scientific and research work.
