Collaborative Learning: Recognizing It When We See It.
Whipple, William R.
AAHE Bulletin, p4-6 Oct 1987
The concept of collaborative learning is discussed, with the following definition offered: "a pedagological style that emphasizes cooperative efforts among students, faculty and administrators." The paper focuses on the following characteristics: (1) collaboration means that both teachers and learners are active participants in the educational process; (2) collaboration bridges the gulf between teachers and students; (3) collaboration creates a sense of community; (4) collaboration means that knowledge is created not transferred; (5) collaboration makes the boundaries between teaching and research less distinct; and (6) collaboration locates knowledge in the community rather than in the individual.
