Innovative methodologies for computer-supported collaborative learning

14 June 2017

A Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation seminar.

Many researchers argue that students must be meaningfully engaged in the learning resources for effective learning to occur. However, current online learners still report a problematic lack of attractive and challenging learning resources that engage them in the learning process. This endemic problem is even more evident in computer-supported online learning (CSCL) because these environments generally lack authentic interactivity, user-empowerment, social identity, and challenge, thus having a negative effect on learners’ self-motivation and engagement.

This talk will address specific methodologies – including learning analytics, gamification and emotional awareness – for overcoming these and other limitations found in CSCL, based on both highly interactive systems and innovative learning strategies. The knowledge extracted from the collaborative interaction is used to assess participation behaviour, knowledge-building and performance in order to provide feedback and evaluation of the collaborative process. Experiences gained from applying these methodologies to real contexts of CSCL will be shown and discussed.
