Multicultural teams have the potential to outperform monocultural teams. However, the components and roles of cultural diversity in teamwork effectiveness are ambiguous. Therefore, this paper aims to explore the question of“what aspects and relationship of cultural diversity and teamwork effectiveness have been studied in scholarly literature”.As a Work-in-Progress paper, so far the authors have explored three major databases in the education and psychology fields, applied inclusion and exclusion criteria, and finally selected14 papers in this presented systematized literature review. We find out and report preliminary multi-faceted constructs in both cultural diversity and team effectiveness and the complex relationship between them, which could be moderated or mediated by mixed factors. In this paper, we begin to identify the emphasis and gaps from literature to inform future practice and research in engineering education transforming cultural collision into cultural synergy to fuel teamwork effectiveness.
