Join us on 10th March 2021 for the ninth session from the CSCL in Times of Crisis webinar series. We hope to see you there to explore the Collective Regulation & Enhanced Analysis Thinking Environment (CREATE) with Tugce Aldemir, Marcela Borge, and Xia Yu, The Pennsylvania State University

Collective Regulation & Enhanced Analysis Thinking Environment (CREATE)

Our increasingly diverse society requires developing cultural competencies in a way that one could form relationships across differences. Developing these skills is a long-term endeavor that needs repetitive practices of collaborative sense-making around topics such as race, gender with diverse identity groups. However, learners have rarely been taught how to engage in this form of collaborative sense-making, and with the challenges COVID brings, the existing communication problems could be amplified across a larger scale, leading to more polarization in society. Thus, we introduce The Collective Regulation & Enhanced Analysis Thinking Environment (CREATE), an online text-based platform, and the pedagogical models. It was initially designed to develop learners’ knowledge and skills to collectively monitor and regulate collaborative discussions. We will share our ongoing research on revising the CREATE to help develop the ability to regulate and optimize difficult dialogues and practice the skills needed for multicultural competencies in a CSCL context.

You can stream the webinar and participate in the subsequent Q & A session here on Wednesday, March 10th 2021, 3:00 – 4:00 pm (GMT, London, UK):
