This is an education research project conducted by Doctoral Research Candidates at the Centre for excellence in Media Practice.

It was awarded Centre of Excellence status in 2004 by the Higher Education Funding Council as the only HEFCE - funded Centre for excellence in media education in the UK.

The key aims of this research are to investigate and understand how teachers and learners studying film and media practice, are able to interact with each other, and with digitally published resources, to help find out - especially from a social-learning point of view, what sorts of behaviours in computer supported collaborative learning (or CSCL) can lead to better outcomes for teachers and learners.
