The Collaborative Learning track is a series of three workshops for Columbia instructors and graduate students exploring group learning activities and digital technologies that support them. Participants discuss models of collaborative assignments and digital platforms that support them. Participants who attend all three sessions and complete related activities receive a letter from CTL certifying successful completion of the workshop track that can be referenced on c.v.s and other descriptions of pedagogical preparation.
Following up on our general discussion of collaborative learning in the first session, this workshop delves more deeply into the logistics of implementation. We focus on the affordances of digital environments supported at Columbia that encourage peer-to-peer engagement, such as Wikispaces, EdBlogs, and Mediathread. Participants may ask for hands-on assistance with setting up a collaborative assignment on a platform of their choosing so that it is ready to run with students or show to colleagues.
