Collaborative Learning Techniques: A Handbook for College Faculty Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Engaging students in active learning is a predominant theme in today?s classrooms. To promote active learning, teachers across the disciplines and in all kinds of colleges are incorporating collaborative learning into their teaching. Collaborative Learning Techniques is a scholarly and well-written handbook that guides teachers through all aspects of group work, providing solid information on what to do, how to do it, and why it is important to student learning. Synthesizing the relevant research and good practice literature, the authors present detailed procedures for thirty collaborative learning techniques (CoLTs) and offer practical suggestions on a wide range of topics, including how to form groups, assign roles, build team spirit, solve problems, and evaluate and grade student participation.

Praise for Collaborative Learning Techniques

"For faculty who are serious about pursuing more powerful forms of student learning, this book is a must. It brings together, as no other resource does, the best that has been thought, said, and done on the topic of collaborative learning. It?s a handbook for teachers who want students to use their heads."

?Pat Hutchings, vice president, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching

"Collaborative Learning Techniques is a clear, comprehensive, and practical guide to the what, why, and how of collaborative learning that will benefit all college teachers. Collaborative Learning Techniques will be a well-used reference for years to come."

?Tom Angelo, coauthor with K. Patricia Cross, Classroom Assessment Techniques

"Great for current practitioners and for those wanting to learn how to incorporate collaborative learning into their classrooms. This is a comprehensive guide to what collaborative learning is, why it?s important, and how to implement it."

?Barbara Gross Davis, assistant vice provost for undergraduate education, University of California, Berkeley and author, Tools for Teaching

"Classroom Assessment Techniques became the most implemented innovation of the last two decades. With Collaborative Learning Techniques, Pat Cross and her colleagues have created a handbook that will become the most implemented innovation of the next two decades."

?Terry O?Banion, president emeritus and senior league fellow, League for Innovation in the Community College, and author of A Learning College for the 21st Century

"An indispensable guide to collaborative learning for teachers interested in proven strategies to enhance student learning."

?Barbara Leigh Smith, codirector of The Pew Charitable Trusts? National Learning Communities Project and coauthor of Learning Communities: Reforming Undergraduate Education

Book News Annotation:

Barkley (music, Foothill College), Cross (emeritus, U. of California, Berkeley) and Major (education, University of Alabama) explain the epistemological underpinnings that differentiate cooperative and collaborative learning, presents the pedagogical rationale for collaboration, and summarizes the research on the effectiveness of collaborative learning. Tailored to the needs of college teachers, the second half of the book provides 30 collaborative learning techniques for encouraging discussion, reciprocal teaching, problem solving, organizing graphical information, and writing.
