Initial Post Week 8

Teamwork is important as it can help inspire innovation and creativity (Chiang, Chapman, & Elder, 2011). Some of the benefits include creativity, learning, blending strengths, trust, conflict resolution skills, ownership and risk-taking (Mattson, 2015). Luckily the group I am a part of has been amazing to work with. Everyone is professional, contributes, and communicates appropriately.  Of course, this isn’t always the case. Teamwork isn’t always positive and can come with its barriers which can include meaning, time, work culture, equality, and conflicting views (Chiang, Chapman, & Elder, 2011). Group projects in the online setting can be even harder as most times your group members live quite far away and the only way to contact them is through phone and video chats and email. “It was hypothesized that groups receiving more support from the facilitator, getting more acquainted with teammates, building more trust, having clearer communication among teammates, and involving better organization practices would have greater satisfaction with online collaboration experiences” (Tseng, Ku, Wang, & Sun, 2009, para 31). We have tried to make time by scheduling meetings when it works for the most amount of people and doing it via video chat so that we can all see each and bounce ideas off of each other (Chiang, Chapman, & Elder, 2011). We have made the due dates far enough in advance that everyone has plenty of time to work around their schedules to get the work done. We have split up the work fairly so that no one feels like they have more to do than anyone else.

One of the barriers that we have had to overcome is time (Chiang, Chapman, & Elder, 2011). Everyone has busy lives, children, shift work, families, friends, and school. Sometimes it is hard to find the time to all get together for meetings or to find time to get all of the work done. Strategies that Chiang, Chapman, & Elder (2011) recommend include agendas/readings handed out early so people have enough time to review before meeting and to try and schedule meetings at convenient and acceptable times to people’s schedule (Chiang, Chapman & Elder, 2011). When working together to develop curriculum it is important to make sure everyone involved has a chance to give their input no matter how busy each other’s schedule is. Another interesting barrier I read about which I feel applies to all groups in this class in unfamiliarity of team members. Since we don’t know each other well, we don’t know all of each other’s strengths. Creating smaller teams is a strategy to overcome this barrier (Kalisch & Begeny, 2005). This is beneficial for a nurse educator as when providing group education sessions the educator will know to create smaller group sizes.
