Abstract [en]

Collaborative case-based virtual learning was used with special teacher education students from Finland (N = 94) and Sweden (N = 59). The case was about consultation and was tailor-made to fit their studies. The case was used as a bridge between theoretical and practical studies, and consisted of videos of an imaginary school, which proceeded in the form of a narrative. The goals for the students were practicing challenging situations and critical thinking in small groups—a kind of artificial experience building. After completing the case, the students responded to a questionnaire about it. They evaluated the case positively as a new, inspiring method. Only a few critical comments were received, such as that there was too little time for deep discussion. The method of virtual learning seems to be a good, inspiring way to study in higher education, as an alternative to lectures. Other topics these students would like to study in a similar way were issues related to interaction and new professional skills, such as co-teaching or discussions with parents. The different aspects of this kind of virtual collaborative learning are discussed.
