Finding Common Ground: An Evaluation for the CareersInPlay Design Team
common ground, collaboration, virtual teams, remote work
The following evaluation was conducted to review the practices of establishing and maintaining common ground on a cross-institutional, multi-disciplinary design team. Interviews were held with student and faculty team members to discuss the team’s processes for onboarding new members, conducting meetings, and communicating among team members. Interviewees also commented on the effect that moving to exclusively remote work due to COVID-19 had on their individual work and on the team’s collaboration. Findings included the need for easier access to resources that help team members understand the project, more transparency about what each team is working on, and more focused meetings concentrated on sharing updates relevant to the entire team.
