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.
In the first session of the Collaborative Learning track, participants are introduced to some theory about peer interaction and learning, discuss rationales for and potential pitfalls of collaborative activities in higher ed classes, and look closely at models of group learning assignments at Columbia.
