Online Global Collaborative Learning Playbooks

Overview

The Online Global Collaborative Learning Playbooks are recommended for K-20 educators and education leaders. Each one is designed to provide resources to help educators and education leaders understand how to implement collaborative learning and online global projects into the curriculum.

The Playbook design is multi-faceted and provides options for those who want an independent learning experience and those who wish to join an online cohort and learn about collaboration in a global collaborative environment.

The Playbooks are designed and delivered by Julie Lindsay who, as an internationally recognised global leader, has 20+ years experience in designing, implementing, and writing about online global collaboration, as well as vast experience in online learning design and teaching for K-12 and higher education.

The FOUR Online Global Collaborative Learning Playbooks are inspired by Julie’s recent book, The Global Educator: Leveraging Technology for Collaborative Learning and Teaching, which in conjunction with current research about online collaborative learning, relevant examples and experiences from online global projects, and many other resources provide rich material for learners to engage with.
