Cooperative learning may be defined as a structured, systematic instructional strategy in which small groups work together toward a common goal. It differs from collaborative learning in its emphasis on highly structured techniques for ensuring positive interdependence within groups and its insistence on individual accountability rather than undifferentiated group grading. This two-part bibliography provides 101 annotations of books and articles on cooperative and collaborative learning research and practice. Both parts of the bibliography are divided into two major sections containing applied and research/theoretical works. Part I focuses on works published prior to 1989, while part II emphasizes works appearing in 1990-91. Part II also provides a brief introduction which charts the growing interest in cooperative learning among higher education practitioners and defines cooperative learning in contrast to other approaches. Some works on collaborative learning and other forms of small group work in higher education are also included. (JSP)
