Cooperative Learning: Review of Research and Practice
Gillies, Robyn M.
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v41 n3 Article 3 Mar 2016
Cooperative learning is widely recognized as a pedagogical practice that promotes socialization and learning among students from pre-school through to tertiary level and across different subject domains. It involves students working together to achieve common goals or complete group tasks--goals and tasks that they would be unable to complete by themselves. The purpose of this paper is to review developments in research and practice on cooperative learning and to examine the factors that help to explain its success. In particular, the review focuses on the key elements that contribute to its success and the role teachers' play in developing students' thinking and learning when implementing this pedagogical practice in their classrooms.
