Cooperative learning and how to use it

Cooperative learning is an approach that is based on natural human interactions in which students work together to solve problems, thereby improving not only their knowledge but also social skills. They are encouraged to divide roles, plan their work, divide subtasks, support each other, resolve conflicts, combine sub-results into a larger whole, evaluate the contribution of individual members, etc. This approach, unfortunately, is still not commonly utilized in class even though different modes of cooperation are commonly encountered outside school, especially at work.

Active learning

Universities are expected to educate skilled graduates who possess great problem-solving skills. This is possible when appropriate methods of teaching are chosen and students are active and involved in the teaching-learning process. Many years of research proves that students should do more in class than just listen. They should read, write, discuss and engage in problem-solving activities. Most importantly, to be actively engaged, students need to undertake higher-order thinking tasks such as analysis, synthesis and evaluation. Thanks to active learning, not only do we improve students’ participation in class, but also develop their core transversal competencies.
