Learning in communities

Learning in communities and collaborative learning is one of my favorite topics and it has been exiting discussing it in our pbl-groups in my ONL171-cours this last two weeks. Constructing new understanding together with others is one of the most exciting things to do and that is what drives me to develop my views on how teaching can be planned to enable this.

Let me present the work we did in our group, A Practical Guide to Harnessing the Potential of Learning Communities. I hope these points will inspire others to see the possibilities of thinking in new ways when planning and implementing education. Even the importance of collaboration between teachers and facilitators came up as a crucial theme for success.

This infographic, based on seven principles offered by Chickering and Gamson (1987), can be helpful for the online course facilitators to harness the potential of learning communities. Feel free to use it and share it.

  1. Hello Bettina! Yes, i agree. this topic was very interesting. The articles fore this topic were very interesting to read. At the same time I’m not surprised. It reflects how we view learning today. Learning together with others, use diffrent experiences and knowledge, foramtive assessment… But it feels good to get it confirmed and that it’s also important in e-learning.
