  • 3. unit 3 Collaborative Learning and Communities Rationale: Proponents of collaborative learning have long heralded the power of well managed group-based interaction as a means of promoting positive interdependence, individual accountability, social skills, and group processing. This third unit will encourage learners to explore aspects of collaborative and community learning especially in relation to networked online spaces for learning, personal learning networks and environments and discuss the relevance of peer learning and the development of learning communities in the context of self- directed and self-organised learning within and beyond institutional boundaries (formal, informal and non-formal learning).
