Strong Community, Deep Learning: Exploring the Link
IETI Volume 42, Number 3, ISSN 1470-3297
This explores the constructivist understanding that shared practitioner research in collaborative online spaces leads to deeper learning. The research was developed within the context of building the National College of School Leaderships (NCSLs) online learning communities. A community and a learning scale, both emerging through grounded analysis, are applied to six conversations across both formal and informal learning contexts. When representing the findings, a strong similarity in the community and learning graphs suggests an association between the two. Recommendations point to the importance of building collaboration and community, integrating formative assessment, and freeing the learning-facilitator from tasks that the community can fulfil, so that they can focus on their primary role of facilitating quality learning.
