Why Teaming?

Solutions to today’s increasingly “wicked problems” demand teaming across disciplinary boundaries. While we increasingly ask students to work in teams, we provide them with little guidance or support for making those teams successful.  We want to teach students teaming skills.  As a result, our students will be prepared to leverage the diversity on their teams to achieve better, more innovative team outcomes.

Students Trained

We've trained hundreds of students, freshman through PhDs and every degree in between, to work more effectively with others and learn to navigate team challenges.

Our Model

We provide students with online resources and in-person coaching support that allow them to learn about the basics of teaming, and develop their personal capabilities as team members and team leaders during their time in school. We further provide faculty with guidance on how to embed teaming curricula into their project-based classes, leading to more engaging and more effective learning opportunities for students.

Teaming and The fourth Industrial Revolution

“We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. We do not yet know just how it will unfold, but one thing is clear: the response to it must be integrated and comprehensive, involving all stakeholders.”

Our Team

Teaming by Design was co-created by Dr. Sara Beckman and Dr. Barbara Waugh, both from the University of California at Berkeley, supported by a team including Jane Creech, Ulrich Nettesheim, and Brandi Pearce. The curriculum aims to help students realize the importance of leveraging diversity amongst collaborators and improve their teaming competency over time. Teaming by Design is currently integrated in project-based courses throughout engineering, natural sciences, the arts, and business at UC Berkeley and beyond, with research on its impact being conducted by Rachel Dzombak.
