Preparing Students for 21st Century Teamwork: Effective Collaboration in the Online Group Communication Course
Messersmith, Amber S.
Communication Teacher, v29 n4 p219-226 2015
Facilitating meaningful interaction among students is a significant challenge of teaching in the online environment. This paper presents a semester-long approach that enables quality interaction among group members within undergraduate online group communication courses while experiencing the challenges of working with geographically dispersed group members, as well as the viability of accomplishing tasks using technology. Intact groups complete a series of assignments: introductory discussion board, group contract, and a 10-week, five-phase group project focused on online collaboration applications.
