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. People work in pairs, in small or larger teams, meet at large social events and use various social ties to perform their work. We should bear in mind that the classroom environment does not differ and cooperation between students should be the basis for exchanging knowledge and experience. Thanks to cooperative learning, we significantly improve active participation in class and help our students develop their core transversal competencies.

During the workshop we will try to answer the following questions:

  • What is cooperative learning? What are its essential elements?

  • How to plan and support cooperative learning?

  • What are the most commonly used methods of cooperative learning?

  • How to evaluate cooperative tasks?

If cooperative learning is something you would like to explore in greater detail, I will be more than happy to show you ways how to incorporate it into your lesson plan.

The course is designed for those with English language proficiency at B2 level or above.
