Finding Adventure in Teaching Teamness: A Worship in Team Skill Development for IPE

10-12-2018 09:42

​As stated in this year’s theme for the Behavioral Forum, residents are finding more and more of their training occurring within the context of teams as a means of advancing the value of team base care within Family Medicine.  The challenge then is how to create opportunities for “teamness” or “collaborative competence” (Earnest, 2016) where skills such as team work, leadership, roles and responsibilities, group communication, and team problem solving can be taught and experienced.  Adventure Based Learning (ABL), which is closely related to Problem-based learning, can serve as a vehicle for providing innovative tools for teaching team skill development.  ABL is an experiential approach to instruction where there is a deliberate use of sequential activities, such as games, initiative activities, and problem solving tasks that allow for individuals to experience themselves within a functioning team, and to develop team skills.  Many instructional approaches fall short of providing enough challenge, experience, and adequate team context for developing adequate team skills.  The aim of this workshop is to provide active participation in ABL, where the audience is in fact part of a team and walking through a curriculum that has been utilized for interprofessional education and team skill development.  Participants will not only be exposed to a theoretical overview of ABL, but will leave with innovative teaching tools and strategies that they can apply in developing or strengthening their own curriculum for interprofessional education.
