Doing It Differently: The Ups and Downs of Peer Group Learning
Belward, Shaun; Balatti, Jo
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) (35th, Singapore, Jul 2-6, 2012)
Peer group learning is the name we have given to a particular type of collaborative learning that has been implemented as part of an action research project designed to improve teaching and learning of first year university mathematics at James Cook University. Using an innovation-decision process model we analysed the response of academics to the implementation of the peer group learning initiative. The analysis reveals that the action research methodology allows generally positive attitudes regarding the initiative to surface.
