Learning Through Collaboration and Cooperation

Description

Concept by Ilaria Barbieri

Students’ active involvement, effective learning, and soft skills are KEY elements in 21st-century education, and we can enhance them through effective cooperation.

If educators can support collaborative learning environments, students can work together to reach relevant shared goals, acquiring notions and competencies that will make a difference in their own lives.

Collaboration and cooperation in learning environments enable learners to:

  • Feel Active and Useful;
  • Feel Integrated into a Group;
  • Learn mutual Trust and Respect;
  • Have better Motivation and Self-esteem;
  • Access Learning Contents in alternative and enjoyable ways;
  • Get Inspiration from others, as well as Creativity and Learning-to-learn skills;
  • Effectively deal with the Pros and Cons of living together and learning together.

As educators, trainers and teachers know, managing collaboration, cooperation, as well as working groups and teams requires skills. This course aims at fostering them through active reflections and hands-on activities that will be suitable for different subjects and applicable at different levels.

By the end of the course, you will know how to better manage collaborative and cooperative learning strategies in your class, modelling activities that make learning more fun and effective, improve school relationships, and promote your students’ personal and social growth.

Reviews about this course

Mikael Sundinfrom Sweden
5 stars

The trainer made sure that we were active. We had theroretical discussions but there was always time for practical usage. She created a relaxed atmosphere with the help of the friendly participants from all over Europe. It is really interesting to exchange ideas and experiences with teachers from other countries and different levels. A great course.
