Developing a shared vision to improve collaborative learning
Each day Cafeteria Training students work collaboratively to perform daily tasks. However, challenges arise associated with collaboration that requires teacher intervention. An approach to address this concern was to involve students in developing a shared vision. By having students develop a shared vision this would increase classroom sense of community and therefore improve the collaborative effort of Cafeteria Training students. A quantitative study was conducted with 14 Cafeteria Training students that measured their perceived sense of community before and after developing a shared vision. Students reported noteworthy improvements to their sense of classroom community, caring for one another, student support, and the feeling of family.
