Alanna Pawlak publishes paper on modes of collaboration

Graduate student Alanna Pawlak published a paper examining how students interact in groups in the physics classroom which introduced the modes of collaboration framework.

The paper, which appears in Physical Review Physics Education Research, describes a framework which provides a method for analyzing students interactions in collaborative group work. The modes of collaboration framework defines student interactions along three dimensions: social, discursive, and disciplinary content. This multidimensional approach offers a unique lens through which to consider group work and provides a flexibility that could allow the framework to be adapted for a variety of contexts. In the paper, several applications of the framework are demonstrated and suggestions are made for its future applications.
