Integrating Collaborative Learning Experiences

Evidence abounds that deep learning happens through exploration and discovery. Students who engage in experiential learning understand topics more clearly, completely, and permanently. An effective way to engage students in discovery-based education is through collaborative learning. In this framework, learning contexts emerge through cooperation between students, groups, and instructors. Instead of the instructor presenting material first and then assigning an assessment activity, students engage in an inquisitive activity where they figure a concept out on their own or in groups. They explore the topic and draw their own conclusions. Then the class reflects together to clarify concepts and answer questions.

Workshop Learning Objectives:

  1. Discover ways that collaborative learning can be used in college classrooms
  2. Imagine ways that they might incorporate collaborative learning in their classrooms
