Collaborative learning in the virtual classroom

Activity: Talk or presentation typesConference contribution (without a publication)Academic


Looking for inspiration to use the virtual classroom in your course? Join our workshop on collaborative learning techniques (CoLTs) for synchronous online learning. Central to the workshop is the introduction of an electronic handbook that includes guidelines, templates and scripts to design, develop, and deliver such techniques. We will discuss CoLTs like the fishbowl and the jigsaw and provide you with examples that have been piloted in university programs in law, environmental, and educational sciences. The handbook is a deliverable of BISON, an innovation project at the Open Universiteit which was co-funded by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.
