Task design: issues and beliefs of students and teachers in collaborative setting

Kashmira Dave will present the themes of her findings of her Ph.D Project CSCL in higher education: Design approaches using patterns and pattern languages. Her PhD focuses on educational design in Higher Education and capturing the teachers' conceptions of the task design and how is it interpreted by students.

Kashmira will be focusing on the prevailing task (assessment and in class) design practices. Her aim is to present some results about teachers' design intention and students' interpretation of the design. She will also present some examples where in teachers' design intention matched/did not match students' understanding of design and what teachers had to say about it.

Other aspects discussed include the major considerations a teacher makes when they design tasks (the rationale for choosing the task and why) and if teachers should and do align task design with activity and outcome.
