Abstract or description

Microsoft Teams is a cloud app digital hub that brings channels, conversations,
meetings, files and apps to Microsoft 365. Teams are made up of channels and
channels are used to divide a Teams into topic or in this case undergraduate
modules. The paper combines a practical analysis of Teams as a computer supported
collaborative learning (CSCL) process and explains what Teams can offer
educators in higher education institutions (HEIs). Moreover, the paper argues that
teaching and learning with the app is located within the social constructivism
paradigm of educational theory. The paper engages in a discussion about a social
constructivist approach to collaborative learning. The paper examines the authors’
use of a Team to teach the Language of Law, a module on a LLB(Hons) course. The
authors discuss the use of the assignment tab to facilitate PowerPoint presentations
in group workshops, allocate required reading and grade formative assignments.
