Abstract

Learning through dialogue and collaboration is an important issue in educational studies. However, transforming educational practice from more traditional, transmission based classroom instruction to teaching and learning through dialogue and collaborative group work has proved not easy. Establishing and sustaining collaboration and dialogues in classrooms demands different attitudes and new skills for both teachers and students. As we will demonstrate in this symposium, it also demands the establishment of specific ground rules.
