Virtualness In Classroom-As-Organizations: Problems and Solutions When Using Technology
The Classroom-as-Organization (CAO) is an experiential education approach in which students create, manage, and lead an organization as part of class activities. Given the challenges that the CAO poses to students, it is likely that students conduct part of the CAO work outside of the classroom setting. In this roundtable discussion, we conceptualized the CAO as an organization with a certain degree of virtualness, a construct associated with several negative organizational outcomes. In the session, we will explore tools that CAO instructors might adopt, and discuss problems and solutions associated with the use of technology in a CAO.
