Collaborative learning


Collaboration is a very powerful tool for learning. Students must not only understand concepts but be able to communicate them, negotiate, assess and reassess their point of view, and come to a shared agreement or understanding. 

This section covers group projects and presentations, collaborative pedagogies, discussion, and collaborative tools such as wikis and discussion boards. 

Blogging in Social Geography

In the first semester of 2014/15 I worked with a FET lecturer in Geography and Environmental Management, Sara-Jayne Williams, who teaches on a module called Society, Youth & Ageing. Together we developed a plan whereby students would blog about the subject matter and share their blogs with each other in order to construct subject knowledge as a class.
