Internationalizing the Curriculum Through the Use of Google Groups

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In order to supplement the conventional teaching programs lecturers from the United States (William Paterson University) and Australia (RMIT University) created collaborative online groups in which their criminology student cohorts participated. A free service from Google (Google-groups) was used to create discussions about various criminal justice related topics. The pedagogical goal of this trial was to simultaneously engage the two student cohorts in active learning through a critical and reflective discourse. This approach was based on the notion of constructivism. In order to assess the value of these international groups within which students created projects both student cohorts filled out questionnaires about their expectations prior to the collaborative process as well as their experiences post the group projects. Preliminary results indicated that students generally felt comfortable with the online interaction and creation of websites and that during this process they broadened their knowledge on criminal justice issues and learnt valuable skills.
