Collaborative learning has been recognised as an important part of education, as it may foster deeper learning. However, getting learners together does not always lead to productive interaction and effective learning. The main purpose of this workshop is to explore how we may leverage the power of technology to better facilitate students’ collaborative learning. Specifically, we will discuss what makes good collaborative learning, the role of technology in supporting collaborative learning, the contemporary computer-supported collaborative learning models, as well as ways to facilitate asynchronous online discussion.

Please note that this workshop focuses more on the pedagogy rather than the technology for collaborative learning.

Learning Outcomes 

At the end of the workshop, participants should be able to:
  1. Describe the characteristics of good collaborative learning
  2. Describe the roles of technology in supporting collaborative learning
  3. Describe several computer-supported collaborative learning models
  4. Propose ways to facilitate productive online interaction and collaboration
