Institution: University of BirminghamThis is a 5-day residential, highly participative, fun and challenging event. Using a combination of outdoor activities, classroom sessions and guided individual and group reflection, participants explore their personal approach to team work, experience what makes teams successful and have the opportunity to share their experiences with a wide range of doctoral researchers. It is based at the University’s outdoor centre in the heart of the Lake District. The University of Birmingham is fortunate in having its own outdoor training centre in the Lake District. This includes fully trained and qualified staff and all specialist equipment. Facilitators skilled in group review and supporting reflection are vital to the success of this activity in order to help participants make connections with the experience and their situation “at home”. We have also found that at least one group tutor should be an experienced academic / researcher, in order to further contextualises the learning. 2 central University staff attend as group leaders, facilitate classroom based exercises and act as small group tutors as appropriate. Up to 4 small group tutors are required to facilitate exercises and group reviews. These are provided by the Centre as appropriate. Access to the on-line Belbin Team Profile tool is also required
