    W2: Supporting Groups in Research-Based Learning Processes With Digital Tools: W2: Supporting groups in research-based learning processes with digital tools
    Research-based learning is a learning format that requires the active participation of learners in self-directed processes of learning and cooperation under the guidance and scaffolding of teachers/tutors/facilitators. The use of digital media in research-based teaching and learning offers new possibilities for enhancing the self-directed learning both in individual and group facets. It also enables the development of key competences, such as information competence, ability for self-organization or the competence for solving problems, and it empowers social learning. Taking into considerations these benefits, this workshop aims to offer a broad view of the educational possibilities of digital tools for research-based learning group processes, in order to increase effective collaboration among groups, beyond physical constraints. Therefore, within the frame of the workshop, different digital tools from a range of categories (e.g. collaborative annotation, collaborative writing, pinboards, mind and concept mapping) will be explored and analyzed. After that, the participants will develop and present a brief research-based learning proposal by including some of those tools and provide feedback to the proposals of other participants. All the proposals will be collected, to share ideas among the participants.
