Hamilton, Sharon J., Ed.; Hansen, Edmund J., Ed.
This sourcebook, prepared by the Intercampus Group on Collaborative Learning of Indiana University, offers suggestions to those who are already familiar with collaborative learning, but want to know how others are responding to the same or similar challenges. Papers are presented that examine general issues of collaborative learning in the Arts and Sciences as well as examples of its implementation. Papers and their authors include the following: "Collaborative Learning in the Arts and Sciences" (Sharon Hamilton); "Fears, Issues, and Concerns about Collaborative Learning" (Avon Crismore); "Creating a Classroom Community: Some Skills and Opening Moves" (Sharon Hamilton, Kris Bosworth); "Collaborative Learning: Building a Community of Writers" (Sharon Hamilton); "Educating Collaborative Teachers: A Report of Faculty Resources" (Alison Carr, Kris Bosworth); "Collaborative Learning and Evaluation" (Kathy Egawa); "The Role of Media and Technology for Collaborative Learning" (Edmund Hansen, William Frederick); "Exemplars of Collaborative Learning in Biology" (Paul Zell, George Malacinski); "Collaborative Learning is Possible in Large Courses" (Kathleen A. Kleiner); "Collaborative Learning in Introductory Biology" (Richard O. McCracken); "Collaborative Learning in an Upper Division Microbiology Course" and "Collaborative Learning in a Graduate-Level Biology Class" (Deborah Ross); "The Flowering of Collaboration by Changing the Structure of a Physics Course" (Bennet B. Brabson); "An Application of Collaborative Learning in a Course on Urban Economics" (Donald A. Coffin); "Collaborative Research Teams" (Linda Haas); "Using Collaborative Learning on Case Studies to Foster Critical Reading, Writing, and Thinking" (Sharon L. Pugh); "Collaborative Learning in a Technical Writing Class" (Julie A. Held); "Writing and Grading Group Essays" and "Students Edit Movies to Demonstrate Examples of Clinical Diagnosis" (John F.
