1 Norms A Behavior Contract For the Classroom and Team Work 1 Created by cjwilliamson, modified by ranglin for Ph Deer PBL

2 Creating Team Norms Norms put the Golden Rule into Practice for Groups Norms are ground rules that a group follows. Norms are the rules that govern how we interact with each other, how we conduct business, how we make decisions, how we communicate, even how we dress when we get together. Writing norms helps create groups that are able to have honest discussions that enable everyone to participate and be heard. Norms are part of the culture. They exist whether or not you acknowledge them. 2 Created by cjwilliamson, modified by ranglin for Ph Deer PBL

3 Examples of Norms Be open and honestsay what you think and feel in the room, not the parking lot Be aware of your level of participation. Allow equal airtime for each member so the discussion is fair share. Listen to others perspectives Speak directly to the person(s) when there is a need to confront, challenge, disagree, etc. 3 Created by cjwilliamson, modified by ranglin for Ph Deer PBL

4 More Examples of Norms Treat each person as an equal Begin on time and end on time. Have and follow an agenda Focus on the task. Record minutes. Set vested interests aside. Focus on being a change agent. 4 Created by cjwilliamson, modified by ranglin for Ph Deer PBL

5 Enforcing the Norms Sometimes the toughest part of living with norms is enforcing them. You have to talk about violations and how you will deal with them. When you do not call attention to the violation of a norm, you are actually creating a second set of norms. 5 Post the norms in the classroom. Publicizing the Norms Created by cjwilliamson, modified by ranglin for Ph Deer PBL

6 Evaluating the Norms Periodically evaluate the groups adherence to the norms Give each group member an opportunity to speak about what he or she has observed, or take each statement and ask group members, How well did we do with this norm? Each member should identify the groups strengths and weaknesses, but do not single out individual members. The more upfront you are about how the group is doing, the easier it will be to communicate about other issues you are dealing with. 6 Created by cjwilliamson, modified by ranglin for Ph Deer PBL
