Learning collaboratively, a mini guide for #creativeHE

  1. 1. Learning collaboratively A mini guide to help you get started Chrissi Nerantzi @chrissinerantzi
  2. 2. Learning together can be very rewarding, try it! • Let’s keep the groups small, up to 4 members is fine. • Remember getting together early on with your group members or study buddy is really important, if possible synchronously (try organising a Google hangout). • Agree how you are going to learn together. • See differences as enrichment opportunities • If you are from different cultures use this as an opportunity to extend understanding. • Reach out to your facilitator if you need help. • Be honest with each other and realistic. • Ask yourselves the question: How best can we build on individual strengths? What do we bring to the group? How can we support each other?
  3. 3. If you are new to collaborative learning • Remember it doesn’t have to be a shared product you are working on! • Share the journey instead! If you capture your learning in a portfolio, share it with your group members. • Start from simple collaborative opportunities. • The 5C Framework might help you with this and move progressively towards more complex opportunities for collaboration. See what works for you and your group. • Try also FISh, a process model for individual and collective inquiry.
  4. 4. Some ideas for collaborative learning There are many ways group members can work together. If the focus is agreed among members that has the potential to increase commitment and collaboration. You might want to set-up a group: • to support and encourage each other • to discuss readings • to work on a shared project • To work on an individual project and get feedback • to share reflections on your learning which could be via your portfolio or blog
  5. 5. 5C Framework (Nerantzi & Beckingham, 2014, 2015) used in #creativeHE to scaffold group work
  6. 6. The 5C Framework for social learning 5C linear visualisation Nerantzi & Beckingham Suggestion: Use it like this, progressively as we go through the weeks, especially if you are new to online collaborative learning
  7. 7. The 5C Framework for social learning 5C non-linear visualisation Nerantzi & Beckingham Suggestion: If you are more experienced learners in your group, feel free to pick ‘n’ mix more randomly from the proposed approaches.
  8. 8. Connecting • creating hooks with individuals and groups • navigate in and in between online and physical spaces • discovering resources, ideas
  9. 9. Communicating • listening and reaching out • multi-way communication/ dialogue • open sharing
  10. 10. Curating • filtering • organising through themes and tagging • sharing and signposting
  11. 11. Collaborating • co- constructing • together: process and/or product • supportive co-learning relationships
  12. 12. Creating • individual and social making • playful and experimental • curiosity and interest driven
  13. 13. FISh (Nerantzi & Uhlin, 2012, Nerantzi, 2014) used in #creativeHE to support individual and collective inquiry
  14. 14. FISh (Nerantzi & Uhlin, 2012, Nerantzi, 2014): simplified model for individual and collective inquiry FISh model (Nerantzi & Uhlin, 2012)
  15. 15. Learning together also happens within communities • If you prefer to learn as a member of the course community and not in a group, this is absolutely fine. • You will have opportunities there to adapt these strategies but also bring in your own and see what works for you. • Collaboration can happen anywhere, we can make it happen ;)
