Description

The goal of this study was to engage students as multimedia designers and technology assistants to create instructional multimedia materials at a non-technology based College of Languages in Taiwan. A case study research design was used in order to examine how a particular discipline-based faculty and its students worked together to create the co-mentoring partnerships. Through the teacher-student collaboration, the faculty’s development of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPCK) was also explored. The results of the study showed the teacher-student collaboration model provided this faculty with benefits including technology assistance, and the understanding of students’ creativities, interests, and varied needs for learning. The faculty’s participants also pointed out how a successful teacher-student collaboration model requires a good relationship between teacher and students, alongside students’ active participation. The students found the interdisciplinary learning experience beneficial to their learning achievements.
