Case Histories

Computer Supported Collaborative Work Environments: Their use and effect in promoting Metateaching Within this report I aim to review the process and the outputs of this action research cycle. The initial writing of this work has been very difficult for me as a non-practised researcher trying to understand the very process of this type of research. I believe that the process has been a positive one and that my understanding of this type of work has greatly increased.
