Facilitating Collaborative Learning: 20 Things You Need to Know From the Pros

Facilitating Collaborative Learning: 20 Things You Need to Know From the Pros | E-Learning | Scoop.it

Why have your students work collaboratively? "Collaborative learning teams are said to attain higher levels of thinking and preserve information for longer times that students working individually."

This post provides 20 suggestions to help collaborative groups work more effectively. A few are:

* Establish group goals.

* Keep groups mid-sized.

* Build trust and promote open communication.

* Consider the learning process asa part of the assessment.

The post includes links to a variety of resources and each point has an explantion with additional information.

Marina Cousins's insight:

I liked this article, as it highlighted to me the importance of collaborative learning is much better than individual learning.  As I have mentioned several times, the learning and assessment that takes place within my workplace has a strong behaviourist foundation of learning and repeating key words and actions to pass an assessment (it is a very individual approach to learning).

 

Many of my colleagues view this experience of learning & assessment in a negative way.  What are some of the ways to overcome this negative view of learning?

 

After reading this article, I will seriously consider using a collaborative learning style within my workplace (if I get the opportunity).  The advantage of using real world problems or clinical incidents is that it offers the learner the opportunitity to improve their critical thinking skills and problem-solving ability.  

 

Therefore, by using collaborative learning you can apply the following learning theories of cognitivism, constructivism, objectivism.

Great tips on how to facilitate collaborative learning. Learners that work collaborativley are engaged in their learning and have better learning outcomes. 

Hazel Kuveya's curator insight, April 10, 9:22 PM

Keeping the groups at moderate levels will ensure an effective exchange of ideas and participation in all involved, I can echo the same statement that two heads are better than one. It is also interesting to learn that collaborative teams attain higher level thinking and preserve information for longer periods as compared to  their individual counterparts., yes the use of technology makes collaborative learning manageable.

Objectivism%20and%20Constructivism.pdf

Marina Cousins's insight:

Even though this article is dated, it demonstrates nicely what the difference between the learning theories of constructivism and objectivism.  I was personally struggling with how to apply these theories to my teaching and learning experience.  However, after reading this paper I have improved my knowledge greatly.

 

Constructivism is all about being learner-centred rather than teacher-centred.  This course is a good example of constructivism where learning in an active process in which every learner has the opportunity to engage with ideas and interacts with other learners in order to construct meaning.  This course uses reflection on learning and teaching strategies which is another key component of constructivism.

 

The online learning environment supports social learning and has a element of contextual as we learn in relationship with what else we know, what we believe, our prejudices and our fears.  

 

Whereas, objectivism is about learners assimilate an objective reality.  This is achieved within the health service by practising resuscitation techniques on talking. living mankin called Sinman.  The trainees can obtain blood pressures, put in tubes and drains if necessary etc.  This type of learning is teacher driven where learning is externally mediated by instructional strategies the pre-determine the required mental activities that give rise to acquiring the elements of external reality.

"There's an entire floor dedicated to simulation" 

"The sixth floor was left unfinished in anticipation of … needs that have not yet been anticipated."

"...keep in mind: Duke waited 80 years for this. "


Via Anthea Arkcoll, Paul Oliveri
Marina Cousins's insight:

This type of learning is predominately in hospitals and universities by using technology like this example in this picture, every practiitioner has the opportunitity to practice their advance life resuscitation skills.

 

However, this technology is not available on a general ward when a facilitator wishes to undertake a micro-learning session.

 

The facilitator using the above technology to enhance learning incorporates the following learning theories:  cognitive, collaboration and constructivism.

Paul Oliveri's comment, April 5, 4:27 PM
As Anthea mentions this is a real drooler...one of those very impressive US budget spaces. I love the social constructivist design aspect, a place for students to congregate, debrief, destress after a hard day's simulation and most importantly learn from each other. The design of the space shows a real problem based learning approach and leaves room for the "I don't know what's coming next so everything is portable and leave that floor vacant approach”. The “don’t know what’s coming next” is a very real situation in the medical profession which considers published data over five years to be akin to ancient history. As with Anthea’s point these spaces are only as good as the use that is made of them. We’ve probably all seen very high fidelity simulation equipment being inappropriately used in low fidelity ways. Also one thing which isn’t mentioned in the article is interdisciplinary education, as a doctor your team isn’t doctor/patient it’s doctor, nurse, paramedic, radiographer etc. etc. Opening this space and including the other professions (if not done already) brings a range of dimensions to the learning achieved. Not the least of which is the social constructivist aspects gained by having a coffee with a person studying another related profession.
Anthea Arkcoll's comment, June 13, 5:31 AM
Paul it sounds like you have some experience with the use of simulations. Since most procedures in audiology are relatively non-invasive our version of high fidelity simulation is testing colleagues and family members. Standardised patients aren't routinely used in audiology as the cost would be prohibitive. We do have some pretty low fidelity simulations - the cap of biro makes a pretty good simulator for the size of an ear canal (provided there's no hole in the end of the cap) and we use this to practise some elements of hearing aid fittings. Given we don't have the Duke university budget, we may have to stick with that.
Anthea Arkcoll's comment, June 13, 5:38 AM
You make a very good point about the interdisciplinary education, and it is very challenging to make that happen if those other disciplines aren't directly collocated. While we have health professionals from other disciplines speak at our annual clinical conference, I'm now looking to start developing a library of video or podcast interviews that can be incorporated into more computer based simulations.

Digital Discoveries - SAMR Redefinition


Via Tracy18, Dominique Parrish
Marina Cousins's insight:

I have discovered the whole series of U-tube video's on the SAMR model.  I have used scoop.it on the redefinition video as this is what we want to implement within the workplace and our classrooms.

 

I am a visual learner so I find using this type of technology most useful to aide my learning process.  

 

The objective in this learning process was to learn about the SAMR model and implement it into my teaching setting.

 

The ways I can redefined my teaching is by using powerpoint, video demonstrations or u-tube presentations (eg non-invasive ventilation techniques), adding digital photos for example of a real-life patient cardiac monitor observations for critical analysis or by undertaking mind-maps so the learner demonstrates the cause and effect of their actions to clearly show their understanding of machine settings.

 

As a clinical facilitator, I can assess an employee's clinical skills by implementing the above technology (modification) to enable the person to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in a creative way and provide critical analysis of their actions and thereby redefining the assessment process.

Via Nigel Wynne
Marina Cousins's insight:

This is a good example of applying the SAMR model to teaching within a hospital ward environment.  Often you do not have access to expensive mankins to provide simulation of a real life scenario.  However, by using this technology you can transform the learning and assessment of a particular clinical skill from learning from a type piece of paper and repeating those actions on that paper in practice to actually using this technology to provide collaborative learning and criticial thinking skills to assess a clinicians knowledge.  The clinican has the ability to practice their clinical skills.

Describes a fundamental shift that I think needs to happen to make corporate elearning more effective.
Marina Cousins's insight:

I found this video clip very interesting as I could apply these principles and change the fundamental way learning takes place within my workplace.  At present, within my clinical department all our clinical assessments are based on behaviourism.  You pass your assessment if you recite certain behaviours and key words.  Is this learning?   Can the clinician actually apply their knowledge to solve problems?

 

There has to be a better way to undertake this learning and assessment process.  By  incorporating  problem solving scenarios as a way to  extract the key information and the ability of the practitioner to demonstrate their knowledge and abilities to overcome real life patient problems.  Afterall, as clinicians we have to think on our feet and apply our clinical knowledge to any given patient scenario.

What Content Curation, Chunking Information and Micro-learning have in common? | E-Learning | Scoop.it
In this article I’ll present a framework that could help educators to make a shift from designing long, information based online courses to micro-learning, which is a result of content curation techniques and chunking information design strategy.

Via Channylt
Marina Cousins's insight:

Within a busy clinical ward in a hospital environment, staff do not have time to undertake a 3 hour on-line course.  When management insist that we complete such course, most staff have to undertake such activities in their own time.

 

By introducing micro-learning sessions it will prepare staff for their yearly assessments in a more practical way.  Staff can click on the relevant link if they require more information on a certain area.  This will target your teaching more to enhancing the students knowledge and experience.

 

Micro-learning incorporates the following learning theories of constructivism and cognitivism.

This is what MOOCS are about too..How do you reproduce a classroom "social space" on-line.. or do you NEED to?? Isn't on-line a different social experience?? It is for me.. By promoting that experience on-line learning will succeed.

Nicole Kotoski's comment, April 7, 11:09 PM
Doesn't everyone learn differently? I believe that learning is a social activity and while some may particiapte in all aspects of online learning and it will be a very social practice others may only interact on a 'need' to basis. I agree with Ashley in that each person wil experience a very different social experience! I think the more you put into the experience the more you will take out of it however, in a realistic world people are very time poor and perhaps the peson who interact a 'little' has other needs and priorities. This could be one of the problems with online learning. Are you getting enough out of the experience? Or is it are you able or do you have the time to get enough out of the experience.
