High-Level Co-Regulation in Collaborative Learning: How Does It Emerge and How Is It Sustained?
Volet, Simone; Summers, Mark; Thurman, Joanne
Learning and Instruction, v19 n2 p128-143 Apr 2009
This article examines the nature and process of collaborative learning in student-led group activities at university. A situative framework combining the constructs of social regulation and content processing was developed to identify instances of productive high-level co-regulation. Data involves video footage of groups of science students working on a case-based project. Striking group differences in types of interactions were revealed. Regularities in the emergence of high-level co-regulation and features of interactions that contributed to the maintenance of productive collaboration were also identified. The importance of fostering students' development as co-learners is highlighted. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
