Abstract (up to 200 words):
Collaborative skill is a prerequisite for many employment opportunities after college graduation. Accordingly, most college and university courses include collaborative group projects in their course requirements. However, in today’s Digital Age workforce, many collaborative projects are completed across great distances and with a variety of disciplines. To be effective in the workplace, our students not only have to work well with others, they must work well with people from very different educational backgrounds whom they may never meet face to face … hence the significance of integrating inter-disciplinary virtual teams in the teaching and learning environment. As a work in progress, this 20-minute short presentation will outline learning activities and their respective technologies that can be integrated as virtual team projects. In addition, suggestions for effective group management and peer evaluation rubrics will be provided. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be encouraged to network with each other to create a foundation for multi-geographical, cross-disciplinary virtual teams.
