Abstract

This paper puts forward an argument for a group-oriented generative approach to induction and transition as a way of addressing both a cognitive and a situative view of development (Anderson, Greeno, Reder, & Simon, 2000) that are mutually informative. Such an approach, given the name Shared Thinking, was developed at the University of Glasgow and funded by the Kelvin Smith Scholarship. Shared Thinking is a community model of induction, transition and reflection. It is an innovative approach to the use of voting technology combined with a snowball group-discussion technique to generate a whole-group view of student experience. This paper describes 1 of 5 case studies of implementation where the Shared Thinking approach was used. This case study contains a process of collaborative induction for first year students and collaborative transition for second year students. The paper uses the final report of the QAA on First Year Experience (Whittaker, 2008) as the basis of analysis. See http://www.sharedthinking.info for more information.
