Description

This session investigates how informed learning can be developed in a higher education setting, in ways that help learners bridge the transition between university and the worlds of work and community life. We describe an approach that involves learners working together in small groups on complex tasks that require them to make ongoing judgments about information and technology, and to articulate the basis for these judgments to other members of the group. Assessment is an important aspect of the work, and one that gives rise to interesting questions about power and authority in the setting. The session will discuss the theory lying behind the design of this task; look at the practical issues emerging for the teaching and administration; and consider what can be learned from the recorded student discussions.
