Technology: trust in virtual teams

Joitske Hulsebosch

John Gundry wrote a paper on trust in virtual teams trying to 'unpeel the onion about trust'. A team member is trustworthy if he/she: - Acts in our and the team's best interest - Is trustful - Keeps his/her promises or tells us when they can't keep them - Respects the citation and/or protection of information we send them - Shares mutually -valuable information with us Thinking outloud: in communities of practice and web2.0

How to stimulate creativity in online teams: A 100% online process to design a blended learning trajectory

Joitske Hulsebosch

The members of our design team live in Namibia, Switzerland, Suriname, Nairobi and the Netherlands. It was for me the first time for me to do kind of creative process completely online - it was a challenge, but I thought it would be possible with clever design and tough facilitation.

Joint decision-making about tool use in teams

Joitske Hulsebosch

I'm consulting various people in organisations about the choice for online tools and how to introduce them for use by teams, groups or networks. Together with Sibrenne Wagenaar I wrote a Dutch article called " So you wanna be a virtual team ?" - have to admit here that the Dutch are a little bit crazy giving an English title but the rest is really in Dutch-.

Nancy White on the necessity (or not) of face-to-face

Endless Knots

I share your experience of people wanting to have F2F trainings for online facilitation, etc. I love working with people who simply CAN'T be together, and with that motivation, amazing things are possible, including functioning, trust-ful teams. I've had situations where we had plenty of F2F, process support, etc and the teams failed. If a team is to primarily function at a distance and there are no extenuating situations (i.e.
