This presentation considers recent research related to the process of developing critical thinking within asynchronous collaborative learning environments. The Community of Inquiry framework was used to ground an examination of possible pedagogical constraints. Six categories of pedagogical constraints were identified: students’ motivations, time allotted to discussion topics, online discussions as they relate to other course elements, critical thinking and areas of study, formation of collaborative communities, and the nature of guidance on what faculty members should do. These constraints suggested nine possible implications for the development of critical thinking in virtual collaborative learning.
