WHY BOTHER TEAMBUILDING?
In order for Cooperative Learning to be successful it must take place in
a climate of mutual support and understanding.
T2TUK/Kagan-UK firmly believe that time invested by
Teachers in creating caring cooperative Teams through Teambuilding activities is
repaid many many times over.
The power of teambuilding underpins successful learning, it empowers students to
trust, support, accept and appreciate each other as well as promoting a climate
of problem-solving and sharing.
When students have a strong desire to work together as a team Group Synergy is unleashed,
academic achievement goes up, discipline problems go down.
The power of peer to peer support increases students’ self-esteem, motivation to
learn and respect and liking for teachers and school. Your Teaching becomes more
fun, lively and memorable!
As with our workshops and lessons, what ever the length of time, we as teachers
should feel obliged to include adequate time for team members/participants to get
acquainted and feel at ease.
Either learn the power of Teambuilding through taking one of our Training workshops
or contact us at T2TUK/Kagan-UK for a bespoke session

and their progress over an academic year, we will cover ‘Team Roles’, and of course
provide you with numerous easy to learn activities and structures to build and maintain
powerful teams within your own caring, cooperative classroom.
