Interdisciplinary Student Teams Projects: A Case Study
Kruck, S. E.; Teer, Faye P.
Journal of Information Systems Education, v20 n3 p325-330 2009
In today's organizations team work has become an integral part of the day-to-day routine. For this reason, University professors are including group projects in many courses. In such group assessments, we advocate the use of interdisciplinary teams, where possible. As a case study, we report an interdisciplinary group technical project with members from a Master of Business Administration course and a Master of Science in Accounting course. We also describe the refinements made to the course in order to enhance the collaboration between students from two classes.
