Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning in Higher Education
Roberts, Tim, Ed.
Idea Group Publishing
"Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning in Higher Education" provides a resource for researchers and practitioners in the area of computer-supported collaborative learning (also known as CSCL); particularly those working within a tertiary education environment. It includes articles of relevance to those interested in both theory and practice in this area. It attempts to answer such important current questions as: how can groups with shared goals work collaboratively using the new technologies? What problems can be expected, and what are the benefits? In what ways does online group work differ from face-to-face group work? And what implications are there for both educators and students seeking to work in this area? Chapters of this book include: (1) Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning in Higher Education (Tim Roberts); (2) Online Group Projects (Valerie Taylor); (3) Time, Place and Identity in Project Work on the Net (Sisse Jensen and Simon Heilesen); (4) The Collective Building of Knowledge in Collaborative Learning Environments (Alexandra Okada); (5) Collaboration or Cooperation? Analyzing Small Group Interactions in Educational Environments (Trena Paulus); (6) Mapping Perceived Socio-Emotive Quality of Small-Group Functioning (Herman Buelens, Jan Van Mierlo, Jan Van den Bulck, Jan Elen, and Eddy Van Avermaet); (7) A Constructivist Framework for Online Collaborative Learning (Elizabeth Stacey); (8) The Real Challenge of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (Celia Livermore); (9) Use and Mis-Use of Technology for Online, Asynchronous, Collaborative Learning (W.R. Klemm); (10) The Personal and Professional Learning Portfolio (Lorraine Sherry, Bruce Havelock, and David Gibson); (11) Problems and Opportunities of Learning Together in a Virtual Learning Environment (Thanasis Daradoumis and Fatos Xhafa); (12) Web-Based Learning by Tele-Collaborative Production in Engineering Education (A. Moshaiov); (13) Relational Online Collaborative Learning Model (Antonio Moreno); and (14) Online, Offline and In-Between (Aditya Johri).
