Collaborative Learning
"In this publication we have taken a pragmatic approach to getting collaborative learning (groupwork, teamwork) going in classrooms. Research-based principles are accompanied by examples, links to web sites and extensive reading lists."

Why introduce Collaborative Learning?
Collaborative learning, like problem-based learning, emphasises student- centred tasks and student decision-making by:
  • encouraging a focus on student-centred learning and the development of lifelong transferable learning skills
  • providing an alternative to the individual, competitive model of learning, fostering teamwork and the development of interpersonal skills
  • encouraging a smoother transition to university
  • developing generic skills needed to satisfy employer expectations.
