Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Open, online learning environments, such as massive open online courses (MOOCs) and open learning communities have been promoted as a way to expand equitable access to quality education. Such learning experiences are potentially enriched via extensive networks of peer learners. Even though challenges exist to realize these aspirations, open, online learning environments can serve as a mechanism for how we provide transformative learning experiences. This workshop aims to bring researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplinary backgrounds to explore how the body of CSCW knowledge can better support the vision of sustaining peer-to-peer learning in online environments. Integrating contributions from designers, researchers, and practitioners at the intersection of CSCW & education, participants will cocreate future visions and proposed implementations for open, online learning environments.
