Enhancing Student Collaboration in Global Virtual Teams
Kohut, Gary F.
Journal of Effective Teaching, v12 n3 p44-60 2012
With the growth in the global economy and the rapid development of communication and information technologies, global virtual teams are quickly becoming the norm in the workplace. Research indicates, however, that many students have little or no experience working in such teams. Students who learn through these experiences benefit from higher task achievement, richer personal reflections, better social skills, increased cultural sensitivity, and greater psychological health. This paper discusses the challenges of integrating and managing global virtual teams (GVT) in the virtual classroom and strategies to help realize the unique opportunities they present in helping teach students the skills necessary for success in contemporary organizations.
