Strategies for Teaching Virtual Global Teaming

Wednesday, July 10, 2013, 4:15 – 5:15 p.m. EST

Featuring:

  • Dr. Lynne Gerber, Adjunct Professor of Organizational Behavior and Director of Action Learning, Kenan-Flagler Business School, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
  • A panel of experts

Registration $35 (Free for current KFBS students, faculty, and staff, as well as for universities in the Center for International Business Education & Research network). Register now!

The webinar will explore methods of integrating global virtual teamwork into the business school curriculum and offer tips for planning for - and achieving - outcomes as good, if not better, than those we achieve in face to face teams.  Global consulting projects , chiefly the Global Business Project course offered collaboratively by 15 US and international business schools, will serve as the base for this webinar, but the "lessons learned" and "how to" will be applicable to a wide array of global business courses employing virtual teamwork.

This webinar is intended for US and international faculty who either engage themselves in geographically dispersed teams and/or run courses in which students work in virtual teams.
