MMDI 141 - Collaboration and Spontaneity

3 credits
Through a series of exercises, class discussions, and readings, students explore what it means to work as part of a team. Students learn to develop environments in which the creative process is encouraged to unfold. The basic assumptions that affect the formation of collaborative groups, such as personal responsibility, authority relations, leadership issues, individual differences, competition, the development of norms, and the generation and uses of power, are experienced, explicated, and examined. Students work within this collaborative environment to explore the connections between spontaneous verbal and nonverbal communication.
