During this session, we will explore how using virtual teams versus face-to-face teams engages students and produces Cragan et al.’s four essential outcomes for small groups (member satisfaction, productivity, quality, and consensus) that lead to the best end result for the team, for their process, and for the end product. This presentation is part of an initial exploration into how to use virtual teams and face-to-face teams in online, hybrid, and on-ground classrooms. We will explore how using virtual teams (and even aspects of virtual teams in an on-ground class) can improve inclusive teaching methods, as well as the student experience. Participants will leave the presentation having shared their experiences using small groups and with concepts to produce better small group outcomes in their classrooms. The presenter hopes to leave with amazing ideas and new things to try to further the study of using virtual teams and face-to-face teams to improve outcomes and student learning processes.
