This paper will describe three levels of support for work teams: The Independent level, the Coordination level, and the Collaboration level. It will then describe the technical approach and the model for group support systems research developed at the University of Arizona. The model addresses computer support for both face-to-face and dispersed environments. Activities supported in the model are idea generation, idea organization, idea prioritization, and idea development and exposition. A discussion follows about the lessons learned in the laboratory and in the field. The paper concludes with an expansion of the original research model and a discussion of current and future research directions at the University of Arizona.
