Evidence for Learning: Effective student collaboration

Effective student collaboration

A webinar providing professional learning for educators on effective student collaboration.

Educators in this webinar will learn about effective student collaboration by investigating the evidence about collaborative learning within the Teaching & Learning Toolkit and the wider evidence on online and remote learning.

A collaborative (or cooperative) learning approach involves students working together on activities or learning tasks in a group small enough for everyone to participate on a collective task that has been clearly assigned. In online learning opportunities, students may work on separate tasks independently that contribute to common overall outcomes, or work together on a shared task in small groups through web-based collaboration tools or synchronous live discussion. Approaches which promote talk and interaction between learners tend to result in the best gains.

What you’ll learn:

  • Techniques, tasks and approaches for helping students work together remotely.
  • Creating effective collaboration and problem solving between student groups.
  • How to support and encourage lower achieving students in collaborative tasks during remote learning.

This webinar will be facilitated by Dr Tanya Vaughan in conversation with Matthew McLaren, Assistant Principal from Western Port Secondary College and Dr Pauline Ho from Evidence for Learning.
