Abstract:Poster is focused on activating teaching techniques and skills of students (graduates) of a university. Poster’s outputs are based on two questionnaire surveys (N = 536 and N = 141) conducted among graduates of a University of Economics in 2011. The attention is paid to the following selected teaching techniques with a particular focus on teamwork: frequency of teamwork techniques; team project / essay during the semester; preparation of the essay / project / presentation, which lasted less time than a full semester; actively building and tightening relations in the team during the preparation of the work / project / presentation; written or oral formulation of the findings of the teamwork at the request of the teacher; evaluation of the results of the teamwork / presentation to fellow classmates (feedback to the piped output); targeted exercises focused on team roles; observing the work of a different team and realizing the mistakes of others; role-playing and discussion; video recording of teamwork preparation and subsequent discussion; the competition for best project / presentation / work with other teams from the course. The output of the poster concerns how frequently university students have encountered the techniques, how they use these techniques in their practice after completion of studies, which knowledge and skills they have acquired.
