COLLABORATIVE LEARNING IN AN ON-LINE ENVIRONMENT: MISTAKES AND SUCCESS

C. Johnson

Gonzaga University (UNITED STATES)
Collaborative learning can be both challenging and tricky in an online environment. It is critical that the practice of collaboration takes place with principal certification candidates because of the work they will be doing in schools. The challenge is how to create success in an online setting. It can mean the difference between a successful school principal and failure. Through trial, error, and candidate feedback I have found a few essential elements for learning success.

My findings indicate that collaborative learning in an online environment must occur over a longer period which creates stronger relationships among team members. Further, the feedback reflects that collaborative learning assignments must link to the learning throughout the program. Most importantly, it must be related directly to professional practice, and they must have the opportunity to present their work.

By working directly with candidates, watching their collaboration habits, and receiving feedback, it became evident that the length of collaborative work, links to both program learning and professional practice made a difference in how receptive they were to online collaborative learning. They were able to take their learning experiences back to their professional work and implement the practice of collaboration with other school leaders, teachers, students, and their families.
