Collaboration in Brightspace


The participants work actively with teaching activities focusing on collaboration in Brightspace. 

There will be concrete examples of tools from Office 365 and Padlet and their integration into Brightspace, just as there will be examples from the teaching at AU. 

Learning outcome

  • Participants are introduced to activities and tools that can support collaboration
  • Participants can try out the tools in Office 365 and Padlet as both student and teacher.
  • Participants are presented with ideas for didactic formats, where collaboration is paramount


In this webinar, participants will have the opportunity to try out concrete tools to support collaboration in teaching. 

The starting point will be experiences and didactic formats with the tools Office 365 and Padlet, which will be reviewed and discussed. 

The purpose of introducing forms of collaboration in teaching is primarily to support activating teaching through discussion, practice, and production. In addition, the course introduces lecturers to the possibilities available in digital tools available at AU. 

The webinar will focus on working with co-writing in Word, developing joint presentations in Powerpoint, and organizing files and shared folders in OneDrive. In addition, we will also work with and discuss various activities in Padlet, where students collaborate on timelines, conceptual understandings, or peer feedback. 

There will be time to try out some of the tools, just as there will be plenty of opportunity to ask didactic and technical questions.
