Cooperative Learning

COOPERATIVE LEARNING

Cooperative Learning (also called Collaborative Learning) brings together small teams of students with different levels of ability, working face-to-face, and using learning activities to improve their understanding of a subject. Group projects require teams of students to collaborate and cooperate with each other to produce better results than they could as individuals.

BENEFITS OF COOPERATIVE LEARNING

  • Raises student achievement
  • Develops higher understanding as students teach each other
  • Builds positive relationships between students
  • Creates a learning community that values diversity
  • Develops both good learning skills and social skills

LECTURE BASED LEARNING

Lecture-based Learning is an oral presentation structured to present course content to students where the focus is on the material and the delivery by the instructor.

BENEFITS OF TRADITIONAL LEARNING

  • Lectures can be specifically organized to meet the needs of the students
  • Complex topics and large amounts of information can be communicated at one time
  • Lectures can be presented to large audiences
  • Instructors have much greater control over the learning experience
