Essi Vuopala / LETUniversity of Ouluessi.vuopala@oulu.fiLEARNING OBJECTIVESComputer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) is an emerging branch in the interdisciplinary field of the learning sciences (LS) that studies learning and teaching in technology-enhanced contexts.

Aim of the course is to provide theoretical and practical understanding on how learning can be supported and enhanced in technological environments.

Students will comprehend and review the theoretical background for collaborative learning and evaluation of CSCL. Students will also deepen their understanding of particular CSCL themes in various educational and work life contexts from both theoretical and practical perspectives.

Students will understand the state-of-the-art theoretical basis for CSCL and learning communities in various educational and work-life contexts be capable of designing, evaluating, and assessing collaborative learning in technology-enhanced environments improve their collaborative academic writing and argumentation skills

Role of argumentation in the CSCLArgument = statement/claim evidence limitationMy claim is, Building on the reason, The limitation of my claim is

Counter-argument = Here is a different claim I think needs to be taken into account , Here is my reasoning against your claim, A counter argument for your claim is ..., because ...

Essi Vuopala / LETUniversity of Ouluessi.vuopala@oulu.fiArgumentative skills are not only a prerequisite of collaborative knowledge construction but also a learning goal during collaboration.


About roles in CSCL-courseContributor. Identifies as many pro-arguments as possible and elaborate these arguments. Critic. Identifies as many counter-arguments as possible and elaborate these counter-arguments.Composer. Construct syntheses of the pro- and counter-arguments. Captain. Motivates and guides the group.

Essi Vuopala / LETUniversity of Contributor. Your role is to identify as many pro-arguments as possible and elaborate these arguments on Facebook either in one or multiple messages. That means, you should respond positively to the question and argue for the importance of the approach that is currently being discussed. Be constructive in terms of identifying and elaborating on ways the discussed approach is useful. Anticipate and weaken potential counter-arguments.- Critic. Your role is to identify as many counter-arguments as possible and elaborate these counter-arguments on Facebook either in one or multiple messages. That means, you should put the approach to the test and argue for barriers and limitations of the approach that is currently being discussed. Most importantly, relate and react to the pro-arguments that are being put forward and point out how these pro-arguments need to be qualified.- Composer. Your role is to construct syntheses of the pro- and counter-arguments. Is the critique fundamental or could it be dealt with? How can the problems, barriers and limitations of the approach in question be addressed? Aim is to evaluate pro- and counter-arguments with respect to their substance and importance. Compose conclusions that compromise and that both sides could agree with.- Captain. Your job is to motivate and guide the group, if necessary give timeslots or deadlines in which the contributions should be finished. You need to keep participation high and ask open questions to single participants or the group as a whole. Monitor to what extent both sides of a story have been told and whether the conclusions completely cover the approach in question. You are free to support any of the group members in their specific role and also contribute pro- or counter-arguments as well as syntheses.



Purpose is to activate and transfer prior knowledge of CL and CSCL and create presentation of: how do we together understand CL and CSCL? Groups of three two to students
