  2. 2. Setting and instructional design • 3rd year course of Business Administration in the Economics Faculty at University of Oviedo • 57 Spanish and Erasmus students • Blended learning approach with collaborative learning methodology • Four –seven members working teams • Five authentic tasks related with international economics Active group learning but limited friendship

  18. 18. Discussion Knowledge spillovers evolution At the beginning, students learned mainly from the members of its own team. As time passed, most students learned beyond the borders of their own team and developed knowledge spillovers because teams had a lot of possibilities to exchange knowledge and expertise with the other teams in the classroom learning space.
  19. 19. Discussion Impact of prior friendship Declined over time, indicating that some of the knowledge spillovers are unrelated to pre-existing friendship relations
  20. 20. Discussion Networks are continuously constructed and broken down indicating that learners developed different types of internal and external learning relationships with different students and teams. Learning networks evolve over time
