Teaching and Learning with Virtual Teams

The growth of e-learning and distance education today creates an increasingly pressing need for research and writing on the pedagogy of e-learning. Teams are, or should be, an integral component of e-learning. "Teaching and Learning with Virtual Teams" develops this concept by investigating many issues around teams in the virtual and hybrid classroom, bringing a variety of current research and practice on the subject of virtual and collaborative teams in teaching and learning together in a single accessible source. The issues covered by this book include, but are not limited to, theoretical models, pedagogy of e-learning, virtual team design and management, collaborative learning, and strategies for effectiveness in teaching and learning. These issues are considered in virtual or online classes as well as an added pedagogical element in "traditional" classes. Chapters of this book include: (1) Seven Principles of Good Practice for Virtual International Collaboration (Diane Boehm and Lilianna Aniola-Jedrzejek); (2) Learning Style Flexibility for Effective Virtual Teams (Pieter Toit and Peter Petegem); (3) From WebQuests to Virtual Learning (Robert Zheng); (4) Team Effectiveness in Virtual Environments (Pnina Shachaf and Noriko Hara); (5) Learning in a Geographically Dispersed Context (Rashmi Assudani); (6) Virtual Study Groups (Gregory Northcraft, Terri Griffith, and Mark Fuller); (7) Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (Kara Orvis and Andrea Lassiter); (8) A Blueprint for Assessing Learning in Virtual Teams (Patricia O'Conner and Susan Godar); (9) One School/Two Campuses (Anne-Laure Fayard); (10) Students International Collaboration Projects (SICP) (Kathryn Hashimoto and Jean-Marc Lehu); (11) Computer Mediated Technology as Tools for Social Interaction and Educational Processes (Karen Stout); and (12) Virtual Teams in the Traditional Classroom (Stephen Rains and Craig Scott).
