In this presentation I will examine the virtual teamwork processes by focusing on the perceptions of undergraduate students when they transition, take action and build interpersonal relationships during an intensive learning project carried out at the time of COVID-19 pandemic. The participants (n=20) were Japanese undergraduate students from three universities enrolled in a synchronous online course in international organizations. The study builds on the three-tier model of team processes (Marks, Mathieu & Zaccaro, 2001) as its theoretical framework. The findings are in line with previous research suggesting that virtual teams are multitasking entities that transition through multiple processes simultaneously and consequentially to achieve team goals. I conclude with implications for online teaching and learning, and future research.
