Shared Thinking: Towards a Culture of Collective Work-Based Learning and PDP
Bowskill, N., Brindley, S., Cutts, Q., Lally, V. & Draper, S., University of Glasgow

Here is a new collective approach to Work-Based Learning and Student PDP. Developed at the University of Glasgow, and supported by the Kelvin-Smith Interdisciplinary Scholarship, this idea has become a practice known as Shared Thinking that uses technology to support collaborative reflection in the classroom. Implemented in 5 very different case studies, Shared Thinking offers a transferable practice and a new research method. Through this process, it is now possible to investigate student experience at the collective level using comparative data. In this brief introduction, the concept of Networked Classroom Communities is described along with the practice of Shared Thinking as a pedagogy for collective learning within such ad-hoc settings. In doing so, we open up a new and practical way of addressing the social and contextual learning that is central, and often absent in current practices, to a participatory notion of Work-Based Learning and Student PDP.
