Detailed information about this course:


As a researcher, knowing how to organize teamwork or even lead a research group, might be equally important as knowing how to do research. How do you make sure you as a team reach your goals in time? Can you improve your teamwork dynamics?

This full-day workshop on teamwork and leadership is organized in collaboration with STeLA Europe (Science and Technology Leadership Association), an organization that brings science and engineering students together from prestigious universities worldwide to provide leadership education and facilitate multicultural dialogue on global issues. By means of material based on the distributed leadership theory, developed at MIT, STeLA will provide you with the skills to shape your teams to let teamwork flourish. STeLA will challenge you throughout the day in multiple intense teamwork sessions.
