The purpose of this resource is to model an example of how to convert a collaborative/group work face-to-face tutorial/seminar/practical to an asynchronous online format. 

Collaborative classes involve students working in groups to develop a common output, this output could be:

  • a statement,
  • a response to a situation, case or problem or
  • a product.

Students learn through sharing their understanding of the situation, and possible options, considering other perspectives and negotiating a common solution. Each of the steps challenges students to question and refine their knowledge in the set context.
