Sousa, Fernando Cardoso; Monteiro, Ileana Pardal; Pellissier, René
Quality of Higher Education, n11 p66-87 2014
This article presents the development of a small-world network using an adapted version of the large-group problem-solving method "Future Search." Two management classes in a higher education setting were selected and required to plan a project. The students completed a survey focused on the frequency of communications before and after the project. The findings support the successful development of a small-world network using the selected problem-solving technique in a collaborative project, thus constituting an innovation in a higher education setting.
