Booth 9: The role of technology in facilitating shared understanding/cooperation between team members
Jennifer Walinga worked with Michael Pardy and Instructional Designer, Keith Webster to explore the role of technology in facilitating shared understanding and cooperation between team members. Jennifer considers cooperation to be the most significant phase of team based learning because it signifies a transformative shift by the team from ‘coordination’ to ‘cooperation’. Jennifer’s study involved a literature review, interviews, surveys, and focus groups with BA and MA learners to investigate the role technology plays in facilitating cooperation. The findings of this study will inform the development of authentic team-based learning activities and assignments, effective instructional design, and team-based learning assessment practice.
