    1.3.A. Workshop CSCL

    Based on the taxonomy of support dimensions for designing computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) activities that prof. dr. Nikol Rummel proposed in her brief squib in the ijCSCL in 2018, participants of this workshop will build their own CSCL scripts and highlight the challenges they identify. Together, they will then reflect on challenges and opportunities of implementing collaborative elements in current digital learning environments, and on resulting research questions. 

    Presenter

    Prof. dr. Nikol Rummel, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany. 

    1.3.B. Conversation with journal editors
