Much SoTL literature on online student collaboration does not adequately address issues such as why collaborative activity is undertaken, what students are expected to gain from it, or the role of the tutor in the development of students’ collaborative skills. In this paper we discuss our approach to these issues in the design of our online course ‘Teamworking in distributed environments' and report on student and tutor responses to its first presentations.
