A partially distributed team consists of two or more co-located sub-teams in different geographic locations, who communicate and work together primarily via computer-mediated communication.  Such teams are used a great deal in software development, emergency response management, and other fields.  This overview draws on the results of a large field experiment that included about 1500 participants from  over ten nations.


Roxanne Hiltz is a retired Distinguished Professor of Information Science/Information Systems at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). She, along with Murray Turoff (her husband), are the authors of The Network Nation, a book that is described as "the seminal book that helped define the electronic frontier." Roxanne is one of the recipients of the Cátedras de Excelencia UC3M, a program funded by Banco Santander in collaboration with Universidad Carlos III de Madrid.
