Abstract: Collaborative Learning (CL) is a well-established pedagogy for formal learning in the classroom, but there is little research into CL in non-formal learning environments. ‘Scaffolding’ required to structure CL activities, is often absent in non-formal CL. ‘Shadow Modules’, student-led, student-focused CL groups which parallel the taught module/course, provide this scaffolding. Shadow Modules correlate with positive grade outcomes and resources produced by CL activity are shared using Web 2.0 technologies, and utilized widely. Shadow Modules provide a sustainable format for CL outside of the formal classroom.
