Active peer-to-peer learning at Oxford University

This case study has been shortened for the web. To read the full version and the other case studies in the series, download the full report, Active Learning in the 21st Century Classroom.

Overview

Oxford University’s Wolfson College housed a peer-to-peer learning event that brought together several researchers and PhD and Master’s students from across the UK. During the event, several subject matter experts hosted breakout group discussions on criminology and criminal justice. These knowledge-sharing sessions aimed to give students new ideas that could help them in their future careers and provide established researchers with fresh perspectives related to their current specializations.

Challenge

The peer-to-peer learning event was divided into smaller segments, each facilitated by different lecturers who applied varying active learning techniques for their respective segments. They needed a collaborative solution that was simple enough to operate and had the functionalities and tools they required for the type of sessions they wanted to hold.

Subject matter
Law, security, and justice Organized crime research Criminology and criminal justice
Facilitator
Dr. Ying Yu
Oxford University
Dr. Alex Chung
University College London
Dr. Tian Ma
De Montfort University Leicester
Session type
Open discussion and consultation Hands-on data analysis Live brainstorming and consultation
Session description
The free-flowing discussion allowed participants to share their practical experiences in conducting research related to criminal justice and the challenges they faced while safely collecting firsthand data. To help students better understand the connections among criminal actors, they were given an interactive sociogram to operate. The visualized sample data was based on a record of activities of a particular Asian transnational criminal network. The session aimed to broaden students’ perspectives on criminology by discussing how it overlapped with other areas of study. Participants could share their research topics that they could further improve through live brainstorming exercises.
Requirements
A solution that allowed participants to easily compare different modes of information gathering. A solution that allowed the large sociogram to be displayed in full and allowed participants to physically interact with it so they could better analyze links. A solution that allowed participants to brainstorm research topics whether in person or remotely.

Session description
Through whiteboarding, it became simpler for participants to assess the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches to information gathering and presentation. They were also able to look up information on the internet, which they then used to support their assessments. Multiple participants were able to move nodes on the sociogram at the same time so that they could isolate specific connections relevant to their discussion.
Some of the nodes had links to online resources which participants could easily tap and open on the display’s built-in web browser.
Students got to brainstorm freely on the whiteboard and then organize their ideas through color coding.
Remote participants were able to instantaneously add their ideas through the EZWrite Cloud interface.
