Course Description

Finding ways to foster teamwork, autonomous learning, and cognitive skills in the classroom can be challenging.  By using cooperative learning, teachers can work on all of these skills at the same time.

In this course we will look at the research, theory, and ideas behind cooperative learning. This involves becoming familiar with different types of group formation and their advantages and disadvantages, as well as learning about the role the teacher plays in assessment of group work.
