Description: 

Why Collaborative Learning

Being able to collaborate effectively is a valuable 21st-century skill, yet teaching about or through collaboration remains rare in schools because of a lack of understanding of what real collaboration in an educational setting means, and because existing policy conditions do not always enable it to flourish. Practitioners need a dedicated space and time to experiment and better understand what collaborative teaching and learning means in practice. This course is designed to give you that opportunity.
