Collaborative Learning in ODL

  • 1. ‘Collaborative learning in ODL’ Ormond Simpson 21 November 2018 Please use the ‘Chat’ box to question and comment as we go along! 1 ‘You have to attend classes. You can’t just follow me on Twitter’
  • 2. ‘Collaborative learning in ODL’ 1. Why should distance students collaborate? 2. What's the best way to help students collaborate? 3. Do students like it? – peer collaboration problems 4. Most importantly! - does it work? 5. Your questions? – comment in the chat room
  • 3. 1. Why should distance students collaborate?  to improve learning?  to develop team working skills?  to save money on tutors?  Something else? If all or some of the above, should collaborative learning be compulsory?
  • 4. 2. Ways to help students collaborate? i. Mentoring – previous students on a course supporting newer students on the same course ii. Peer collaboration – students on same course working together without a tutor iii. Tutor-led discussion groups online iv. Other learners – family, friends, employers, teachers v. Other ways?
  • 5. (i) Mentoring Connecting learners with previous learners (a) asking for volunteer mentors by mail or email
  • 6. Mentoring (b) telling mentees what to expect from a mentor
  • 8. (d) Rewarding mentors  financially?  with a qualification?  with a certificate?  ? OU certificate presented to mentors at the Open University Mentoring
  • 9. Mentoring (e) does mentoring work? International study of mentoring (UK, New Zealand and S. Korea) Increases in retention 35% over a non-mentored control group Cost benefit ratio of >200%
  • 10. (ii) Peer collaboration on line Students on same course learning together (i) Connecting students - at face-to-face tutorials? - organised by email? - tutors to organise? - on a VLE? - using social networks - other ways? Meeting online on the VLE, or elsewhere – e.g. Facebook, WhatsApp etc
  • 11. 11 Facebook Yammer WhatsApp Snapchat Yik Yak Twitter Email Viber SMS (text messaging) Peer collaboration online Students connecting using social software Voicemail But how effective are they for learning? Instagram
  • 12. 12 3. Do students like it? – peer collaboration problems Collaborative learning not always popular Problem 1- Scheduling and embarrassment “ Online groups don’t work for me – it’s like a party – you either arrive too early and there’s no-one there. Or you arrive too late and everyone is already discussing assignment 3 and you’ve hardly started assignment 1” “I don’t like online discussions. I find it very hard to join in because I’m rather shy”
  • 13. 13 Problem 2 – Harassment, ‘Dropout contagion’ and irrelevance “I was once harassed online so I don’t join in any more” “Three students in my discussion group dropped out and I lost heart” “All we did in my group was just chat”
  • 14. Peer collaboration problems Solution? - (i) Telling students why collaborative learning is useful ‘Getting Together’ – see www.ormondsimpson.com
  • 15. 15 Peer collaboration problems Solution – (ii) Give students useful strategies Use participation techniques – ‘snowballing’ or ‘pyramiding’ - ‘soap boxing’ - Concept cards - etc. Maybe as a video? ‘All Together ‘ – suggestions for getting student discussions going See www.ormondsimpson.com
  • 16. Peer collaboration problems Solution? - (iii) ‘Study Dating’ Give students control over who they collaborate with
  • 18. 18
  • 20. 20 Peer collaboration problems Solution (iv) Make participation part of assessment ‘The beehive metaphor’ Hughes (2011)
  • 21. The hive as learning environment • Queen Bees - fed by workers. Purpose is reproduction • Worker Bees – collect pollen and make wax • Drones – Fed by workers and cannot survive outside the hive. One will fertilise the Queen.
  • 22. The hive as learning environment • Queens - leaders of an online discussion who produce a product or joint assignment • Workers – gather and contribute knowledge to the discussion • Drones – largely absent from the discussion although occasionally provide a new idea often late in the day Is this fair? Hughes, G. (2011) ‘Queen bees, workers and drones: gender performance in virtual learning groups’ In Kirkup (Ed) Gender issues in learning and working with IT
  • 23. To modify the hive behaviour? • Compulsory contribution - all are workers or queens • But students may have good reasons not to participate: busy lives, illness, feel excluded by others, arrived late to the discussion, do not know what is going on etc.
  • 24. “There was a ‘sell by date’ to the contributions … As much as I appreciated I could go to the discussion board at any time, it appeared late entrants rarely got any feedback…”
  • 25. Ethical dilemmas • Is compulsory participation in online discussions necessary to prevent some learners depending on others to do all the work? • Or unfair on those who cannot easily take part?
  • 26. ‘Collaborative learning in ODL’ 4. Most importantly! - does it work? - yes: some evidence that mentoring works and is cost-effective. More evidence needed, but ‘random controlled studies’ very difficult in distance education
  • 27. ‘Collaborative learning in ODL’ 1. Why should distance students collaborate? 2. What's the best way to help students collaborate? 3. Do students like it? – peer collaboration problems 4. Most importantly! - does it work? 5. Your questions? – comment in the chat room
