Cooperative learning

Course description

We all know the importance of cooperation in today’s society – knowledge is growing exponentially thanks to technology and nobody can grasp it all individually, we need others to produce it, understand it, use it, apply it, etc.

In schools we also need to fully acknowledge the value of learning among equals. The advantages and benefits of cooperative learning have been amply studied and proven and yet frequently when we attempt to put it into practice in the classroom it doesn’t lead to the expected results.

In this course we will provide you with the keys to implement a climate of classroom cooperation, including strategies, structures, principles… which allow you to discover the difference in learning terms between designing group work activities and cooperative learning ones.
