Abstract

Many students experience difficulties in relating science learning to real-world issues. To develop the abilities of students in a course in Evolutionary and Physiological Ecology to make this relationship more effectively, group work on the scientific aspects of current issues was introduced into the course, supported by online courseware. This paper examines the theoretical basis for collaborative group learning and considers the role of computer based technologies to support and enhance this approach. The application of group work to the course is described, with feedback from students obtained through a number of focus groups.
