Team Learning: the Missing Construct from a Cross-Cultural Examination of Higher Education?

Bui, Hong T. M., Baruch, Yehuda, Chau, Vinh Sum, He, Hongwei (2016) Team Learning: the Missing Construct from a Cross-Cultural Examination of Higher Education? Asia Pacific Journal of Management, 33 . pp. 29-51. ISSN 0217-4561. E-ISSN 1572-9958. (doi:10.1007/s10490-015-9426-z) (KAR id:50324)


Team learning should be an important construct in organizational management research because team learning can enhance organizational learning and overall performance. However, there is limited understanding of how team learning works in different cultural contexts. Using an international comparative research approach, we developed a framework of antecedents and outcomes in the higher education context and tested it with samples from the UK and Vietnam. The results show that a common framework is applicable in the two different contexts, subject to slight modifications. However, this study does not find that team learning (measured via the proxy of “attitude towards team learning”) exhibits any statistically significant relationship as a predictor of the proposed outcomes. Other findings from this study on educational contexts are important not only to scholars in this field, but also for practicing managers, particularly those who study and operate in the extensive global market.
