This study examined the role of facilitators in nine virtual action learning groups. A qualitative analysis of the facilitators' interventions across all groups resulted in a typology that included group management, group process, and support interventions. A model showing the relationship among these categories proposes that effective facilitation of virtual groups is built on knowledge of group theory and the skills to make these explicit in a virtual environment.
