Abstract: Research on collaborative learning and problem-solving in technology-supported settings increasingly focuses on understanding collaborative processes, not just assessing their outcomes (learning gains or products). Developing such understanding is a prerequisite for promoting collaboration in an informed way. Different methodological approaches have been adopted for analyzing collaborative processes in technology-supported settings. As no single method is sufficient to unravel all aspects of a collaborative process, researchers must choose approaches that allow them to gain data on those aspects that are of focal interest for a given research question. This symposium will highlight aspects of the diversity of methodological approaches. The speakers of the symposium will describe the process analyses conducted as part of their research in different content domains and collaborative settings. They will discuss merits and shortcomings of these methods in revealing particular aspects of the collaborative processes. The discussion will compare and contrast the different methodological approaches, working towards the development of a "methodological toolbox" which could support informed choice of the appropriate methods of analysis.
