1. Silvola, A. (Anni). What kind of challenges teacher students experience in collaborative learning and how they solve the challenges?.

Degree: 2017, University of Oulu

<div lang="en" class="abs"> Abstract Teacher education is a powerful channel for changing pedagogical culture to respond better for the needs that fast development of technology, changes in the working life, and new understanding about learning, have brought for the education. To be able to teach 21st century skills and collaborative learning, and change their pedagogical thinking, teacher students need to experience the new pedagogical culture themselves as students and to understand the mechanisms of collaborative learning. Collaborative learning is defined as coordinated activity, where small groups of students solve problems and construct knowledge together. To be successful in collaborative learning, students must coordinate and regulate their learning process. Challenges may interrupt group learning, but they also work as an important mechanism to activate regulation of learning. Socially Shared Regulation of Learning (SSRL), is a group-level form of regulation, which happens in the context of collaboration. The aim of this study is to analyze, what kind of challenges teacher students face in their collaborative learning, how much challenges different groups have and to describe as an example, how the case group solves their challenges during the selected session. Data of this study has been collected as part of the PREP21-project, preparing teachers students for 21st century learning practices, ways of thinking and ways of working. This study is a qualitative video data analysis about the challenges in small groups of teacher students in collaborative learning during five weeks’ course of environmental science. Results of this study shows, that students face most often challenges in understanding of the content and challenges to maintain their interest. Students had also challenges in interaction and organizing work and external challenges where technology and external interruptions affected for groups work. The groups who had mostly challenges in understanding and interaction, did not have so many challenges in participation, and the group who had many external challenges and challenges participation, did not have so many challenges in understanding. The comparison of challenges amounts and challenge types between the groups pointed out how challenge amounts and types varied a lot in some groups, while in other groups same challenge types occurred in several situations. The case group was chosen based on the high amount of challenges and the challenge types occurring in the case example. Group managed to solve their challenges and several examples were found and described about SSRL. As a conclusion, it seems that teacher students could be supported in solving the challenges in…
