Why Teach Cooperative Problem-Solving in Adult Education?
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v55 n2 p217-225 2013
This article explores aspects of the theory and practice of cooperative problem solving in education from the perspective of community-based adult learning. It describes how society can benefit from using collaborative and questioning approaches as a positive alternative to more confrontational methods of resolving differences and how collective inquiry is recognised as having sound educational value. Illustrative examples from the Workers' Educational Association show how cooperative problem solving can make a difference to students and their communities.
