Abstract

The research uses an educational research design to design and evaluate a professional workshop to support the teaching and learning. The workshop was designed to support the institutional goals that learning be conceptualized as becoming a practitioner of a knowledge and professional domain and that Information and Communication Technology tools need to support innovative teaching. A CAT framework includes concepts of social collaboration, tool mediation and authentic learning. This framework is used as a heuristic to design and evaluate the workshop. Quantitative and qualitative assessment of artefacts showed that the framework allowed participants to evaluate the pedagogical design of game-based learning reports, design their own learning activities and evaluate the workshop. However, the concept of tool mediation was not fully understood. Future work in the design of the workshop needs to emphasize tool mediation and specific role for ICT tools as mediators.
