3. Collaborative Research & Analysis

The ability for students to work together with peers to develop research skills in a collaborative safe environment is a core competency across all disciplines. This section will highlight a few examples of how this could be achieved.

This section offers ways of using digital technologies to:

  • Create online fora for collaborative analysis and research
  • Form and support student research and project groups online
  • Allow sources, data and evidence to be curated, shared and manipulated online
  • Showcase collective analysis and research as the module progresses

Tips and tools for collaborative research and analysis


  • Use the KLE’s Discussion Forum tool to organise student groups, post sources, questions or problems for students to comment on in threads. Use forum for tutor interventions and feedback, making it clear when you will be ‘present’ / when you will respond by.
