Online Submission, Paper presented at the Advances in Business-Related Scientific Research Conference (Olbia, Sardinia, Italy, Sep 8-10, 2010)
This paper describes several models of teamwork used in business curricula at Zagreb School of Economics and Management (ZSEM) in Croatia. Since its foundation in 2002, ZSEM has been implementing best academic practices for quality assurance. This is done both in terms of integrating ICT in teaching and learning, as well as applying contemporary methods of teaching such as group projects and teamwork. The result is so-called hybrid model of education which combines classroom teaching with intensive e-learning. The focus of research is on the relationship between different models of teamwork and the overall quality of education in the academic year 2009/2010. Special emphasis is given to the correlation between teamwork and students' satisfaction. Besides developing the team skills, the role of teamwork in business education is seen as facilitator for the challenges posed by innovation and communication in the global economy. The study examines whether application of teamwork consequently raises the quality of e-learning. (Contains 5 figures.)
