Building Innovative Teams
How do the best teams work? What practices support a highly innovative team? This cutting-edge hybrid program is designed around how people truly learn – through a blend of practice, reflection, and reinforcement.
Step 1. Practice: In a flipped model of learning, you organize any event or workshop to provide participants with an initial exposure to group collaboration and design teamwork.
Step 2. Reflect: Interested participants can then submit a mini e-portfolio in which they reflect on their teaming experience through words and photos.
Step 3. Reinforce: Participants then enroll and participate in a Stanford 6-week online course, designed to reinforce key concepts based on the enduring practices from the award-winning ME310 design course, taught at Stanford since 1967. Course topics address:
- Create a learning culture
- Building T-Teams
- Collaborating versus coordinating
- Why build to think
- Three horses
- All design is redesign
