The class described below is comprised of students from two universities, where students participate synchronously or asynchronously by attending twice-weekly scheduled meeting times either in person, viewing a live stream via an online conferencing tool, or watching recordings at a later time. This paper describes how students approached long-distance collaboration within teams compared to teams who met face to face. It further presents students’ perceived benefits of developing the skills necessary to collaborate in online and distance situations, skills which will equip them to work, learn, and research in an increasingly virtual world.
An Innovation-Based Learning model was deployed to test how teams from multiple locations, termed Multi-site teams, were able to produce deliverables in comparison to teams who met in-person. Our results show that location separation was not a factor in the success of student teams. This finding suggests, students and learners, who may not be able to participate in a brick and mortar university, can participate in innovation-based teams and the innovation-based learning culture. By increasing the inclusion of members, a diversity of mindset can be attained, which the authors believe may increase a team’s ability to creatively solve current healthcare challenges.
