Student Perceptions of Cognitive and Social Learning in Global Virtual Teams: A Pilot Study
Kohut, Gary F.; Yon, Maria G.
Journal of Effective Teaching, v13 n1 p19-32 2013
The global work environment requires graduates to have skills to work collaboratively over distance and time. This pilot study presents the findings of a survey of student perceptions concerning a global virtual team (GVT) experience that used both synchronous and asynchronous collaboration. Our findings revealed that while students experienced enhanced cognitive and social learning through the GVT experience, they found the activity to be frustrating and time consuming. However, students acknowledged that the experience was beneficial to their learning and should be incorporated in future course offerings.
