Abstract

Learning by teaching has been extensively studied in education and psychology research. However, there has been relatively less effort in this research avenue in CSCL research. Computer supported learning by teaching, as a genus of CSCL activities, is expected to draw more attention in the future. In this pilot study, we propose a model of computer supported learning by teaching that involves peer tutors in preparing their instruction notes and teaching their peer tutees verbally. Collaborative learning is incorporated in our pedagogical design. As an initial investigation and for future improvement of our design, we conducted two experimental trials in a graduate-level course. This paper discusses the design of this model and reports our findings from the experimental trials.
