Experiences designed to facilitate team development should be focused on some, if not all, of the following five issues; 1. Interdependence.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
