In an era of globalization, it is not uncommon for multinational companies to have their employees collaborate virtually. Working effectively in a virtual team has become more important than ever before. This has called for pedagogical designs to foster teamwork competency among university students. The purpose of this session is to have a dialogue about the use of a three-week online team activity specifically designed to help students develop teamwork skills in online environments. Survey results show that interactivity with peers and instructor results in creation of an active, collaborative online learning environment, which in turn increases virtual team effectiveness.
