Abstract

This present study explores pre-service teachers’ experiences of online collaborative learning. This approach to teaching and learning is a new experience for both course teachers and the 270 students of this first year education course within the primary teacher education degree. Course teachers explored the use of wiki as a collaborative learning space. The wiki tasks were contextualised using the science content of this compulsory curriculum course providing a relevant and meaningful (authenticated) platform on which to learn. In this study qualitative and quantitative data was collected throughout the duration of the ten week course. This paper reports on two main themes that have emerged through the early phase of analysis. These relate to the development of collaborative skills and to the level of learning that can be obtained through the use of wiki.
