KUKARD, Kirstin. Creating a collaborative learning environment online and in a blended history environment during Covid-19. Y&T [online]. 2020, n.24, pp.205-218. ISSN 2309-9003.

Collaboration is key to an effective history classroom. Discussion, peer work and learner engagement facilitate the development of historical thinking skills, understanding ofhistorical content and a careful engagement with the ethical issues posed in studying history. The realities of teaching online and then in a blended learning environment during COVID-19 have created challenges for maintaining this collaborative environment. The article discusses a number of techniques that have been employed to foster general engagement and also to scaffold assessment.

Keywords : Collaboration; COVID-19; Group work; Peer learning; Constructivist learning.
