Collaborating on Collaboration
Saturday May 14, 2011 – 5P42
What is your greatest concern about teaching collaboratively?
Think about the following statement:
In your experience, collaboration with others is an effective way of learning.
1. Do you AGREE, STRONGLY AGREE, DISAGREE or STRONGLY DISAGREE?
2. Move to the area of the room where the sign is placed which indicates your stance and wait for further instruction.
According to Black & William (1998) there is a considerable evidence that assessment, when practised effectively, can improve student learning.
(Watkins, 2004; Hargreaves, 2007)
Collaborative AssessmentThe Process
In the moment observations
Self and peer assessment
Student record keeping
Grading for attendance
Interplay of private and public reflection
Learning to learn
Awareness of self
Making sound moral judgements
Active, involved, exploratory
Performance in formal exams
Positive attitude towards course content
(Garrison, 2011; ARG, 2002; Watkins, 2001; Watkins, 2004)

Rate your level of expertise (low, medium, high, no experience) with the following:
3 categories of learning spaces
Some examples of Collaborative Learning are:
*There are many other CL Activities and Models to consider. (See: Bennett & Rolheiser, 2001 and our wiki link [referenced on your handout] for more details)
THINK PAIR SHARE
“what is your favourite type of comfort food?”
* I find this activity works best when there is a template which can be filled in by each person.

DOUBLE ENTRY JOURNAL (an example)
67% of our students learn best actively, yet many lectures are passive.
69% of our students are visual, yet we often choose primarily verbal material.
28% of our students think globally, so we can help them more with the ‘big picture’.
