Campbell, C. (2010). Integrating the experience of students through collaborative task design using student blogs. 5th International LAMS and Learning Design Conference.
There is interest in the social learning advantages technology-infused pedagogy gives higher-education students. This paper reports on data that was part of a wide project from multi-campus teaching in the Bachelor of Education course at La Trobe University. The project aim was to increase the use of technology in the course by enriching the student experience and moving beyond giving lecture content. The project used a blog as the main source of communication between students who were asked to collaboratively construct a definition of learning. Results show students were generally positive about the task, although improvements can be made to the way the task was set up to avoid Mildura students feeling isolated.
