Use of a Digital Collaboration Tool for Project Review - A pedagogical experiment with multidisciplinary teams.
This paper emphasizes feedback from a pedagogical experiment in the context of teaching collaboration and design to multidisciplinary teams. A digital collaboration tool, a multi-touch table and collaboration software, was used as a support for discussion and decision-making for weekly project review meetings. The experiment participants' feedback on the use and usability of the digital collaboration tool highlights the potential for the use of synchronous collaboration technology and project-based learning for higher-level education. It also highlights the need for a transition towards implementation of digital tools at project review sessions.
