Chen, Fang; Sager, James; Corbitt, Gail; Gardiner, Stanley C.
Journal of Information Systems Education, v19 n1 p29-42 2008
Due to increasing industry demand for personnel who work effectively in virtual/distributed teams, MIS students should undergo training to improve their awareness of and competence in virtual teamwork. This paper proposes a model for virtual teamwork training and describes the implementation of the model in a class where students were located in two separate geographical locations. Both survey and qualitative data suggests that the class increased students' awareness of and competence in virtual teamwork. Potential improvements to the course design are also discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
