Connectivism in Virtual Learning Teams.docx
The study examines informal learning and the effect on decision making in virtual teams. The study uses connectivism, a framework for examining networked learning to examine interaction processes on team decision effectiveness. Two learning protocols were used to manipulate communication and information display processes between teams in a closed online environment. The “hidden profile” decision making exercise was used to examine the influence of communication and display process structures on acquisition, validation, and application of information critical to effective decision making. Results suggest decision effectiveness is greater when virtual teams have regulated communication processes, and the ability to visualize decision making information collectively.
