Event description

Description

This brief presentation addresses the eternal dilemma in tertiary teaching; how to encourage collaboration (here amongst pre-service teaching and social work students) while formatively or summatively assessing them as individuals.


Separating out and identifying individual contributions to collaborative tasks presents a major hurdle in tertiary practice. To address this dilemma, we used very user-friendly content analysis tools to identify and visualise the nature and patterns of individual student contributions to collaborative text-based tasks.


In our respective courses students use Google Docs to collaborate in real time on writing tasks and activities. Students and lecturers alike can then dive into the history and development of that document with a range of free online tools. These tools can both enhance and inform student reflection, and enrich our understanding of how students collaborate.


In this catered lunchtime session, the recipients of a Schuler Educational Enhancement and Development Grant (Ruth Lemon, Andrew Thompson, Paul Neveldsen, Rena Heap, and Damon Ellis) introduce you to these tools, and share their experiences using them in their 2017 courses.
