Working in Synergy to Achieve a Common Goal
As researchers it is not unfounded to work on our own. In fact, most of us do work alone, hours conducting research or constructing a formulated, unassailable argument. But studies prove that working alone is detrimental, and that we should, at every opportunity try to involve others in our work.
Psychologists at Stanford University have found that just by receiving cues that they may be working in synergy with others is enough to motivate researchers far beyond the motivation they receive from working on their own. What was particularly surprising was the intrinsic motivation of working together. This suggests that tasks conducted while working in a team are tasks and functions that the individual actually wants to perform.
Twenty rate for teaching excellence
A ceremony will be held on 25 November to reward the 20 staff members selected for the Rector’s Awards for Teaching Excellence.
RATE awards serve to recognise and reward VUT academic staff members (full-time and part-time) who practise excellence in teaching based on established domestic and international criteria in higher education.
Sustainable livelihoods is an operations approach that any business or organisation can make toward investing and developing the livelihoods of the poor community within the country. Business models can use this approach in both the production process as well as helping to contribute toward the community at large.
Businesses and other organisations can apply the sustainable livelihoods approach by developing their own understanding of poverty within the country, and then assisting the community in ways that can be beneficial to peoples’ lives; people who are currently disadvantaged both financially and through circumstance.
