Dr Michael Hogan, Senior Lecturer in Psychology, School of Psychology and Dr Tony Hall, Lecturer in Educational Technology, School of Education recently facilitated a joint seminar on Collective Intelligence and Design-Based Research at the Graduate School of Education, University of Exeter.

Hosted by Professor Rupert Wegerif at the Centre for Teaching and Thinking Dialogue, the seminar examined how CI and DBR methodologies can be used in the collaborative conceptualisation and design of educational innovations, solutions and technologies.

Over the past few years, Michael has worked to extend the pragmatic systems science and collective intelligence methods developed by John Warfield.  In his talk, Michael described Warfield’s method, outlined a variety of recent basic and applied social science applications, and discussed how collective intelligence can be used in a classroom setting.  Tony's talk examined the emergence, potential and limitations of design-based research (DBR) as a solution-oriented, change-driven research methodology across different educational contexts and settings, elective and formal.
