Title

Recommendations for Teaching Team Behavior to Human Factors/Ergonomics Students

Abstract

Many Human Factors/Ergonomics specialists are members of work teams. To prepare students for teamwork, the students' education should include team building exercises and experiences. During both the 2004 and 2005 HFES meetings panel sessions were held on teaching team behavior to human factors/ergonomics students. The first panel identified general approaches and areas requiring study, whereas the second panel focused on how to form and develop effective teams and how to collect and use peer ratings. This document integrates the information obtained from these panels, teaching resources, and audience input. Teaching outcomes, various forms used to effectively teach with teams, and additional references are provided. These complete recommendations are posted at: http://etg.hfes.org.
