The material is made by The Student Guidance Service at the Faculty of Humanities based on Bruce Tuckman’s model “Forming-Storming-Norming-Performing.”
The exercises are made with inspiration from the books “Studiegruppen” by Annelise Dahlbæk and “Anerkendende procesøvelser” by Pia Halkier Bjerring & Annika Lindén.
