Collaborative Learning Techniques is the bestseller that college and university faculty around the world have used to help them make the most of small group learning. A mountain of evidence shows that students who learn in small groups together exhibit higher academic achievement, motivation, and satisfaction than those who don't. Collaborative learning puts into practice the major conclusion from learning theory: that students must be actively engaged in building their own minds

Part 1: The Case for Collaborative Learning What is the pedagogical . by Elizabeth F. Barkley, K. Patricia Cross, and Claire Howell Major.

Part 1: The Case for Collaborative Learning What is the pedagogical rationale for collaborative learning? A basic tenet of modern cognitive theory: learners must be actively engaged in learning (10). Barkley, Cross, and Major explain that non-traditional college students prefer cooperative group learning and stand to benefit more from it than traditional students ; non-traditional students include women, minorities, adult and re-entry students, commuters, and international students (21).

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.
  • Although Barkley, Cross, and Major (2005) set out to create a interesting text for college faculty, it goes beyond this. I feel that now, in 2011, the worlds collective intellect is on the rise, and getting into the game will help ones own intellect. Not only then is this book ideal for students, but for educators alike.

    If you are a "traditionalist" in your pedagogical matters yout type will soon be extinct. This book, and many authorities out there in education follow similar lines of thought. Another good book to buy with this is: Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century (The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Reports on Digital Media and Learning). Also, King Arthur's Round Table : How Collaborative Conversations Create Smart Organizations.

    The three books are very different, but paint a beautiful overview of collaborative and collective designs.

  • Pros:

    Well-organized. You can skip the first 2 parts and just read the strategies in part 3 if you're already sold on the concept of collaborative learning

    Strategies can be used with middle or high school students.

    Each strategy ends with 2 examples of how its been incorporated by instructors. Very helpful.

  • An outstanding book! It has everything I need...instructions, case studies, outlines and more to help me be an effective instructor.

  • This book is an excellent combination of collaborative learning theory and ideas for classroom implementation. There are thirty techniques for effective group work, and these techniques are organized by category (writing, discussion, problem solving, etc.).
    I teach internationally, and this is my fifth purchase of this book because the teachers I train like it so much that I leave it with them.
    This is an important resource for university and ESL teachers.

  • I purchased this book to get ideas for collaborative learning techniques at work. I am in the field of software development and we are moving towards a more team driven approach with emphasis on becoming more of a "learning organization". The book is insightful and has a good structure to be used as a future reference.

  • As a recently hired college instructor, I wanted to develop my skills in collaborative learning. This book provides a good, comprehensive introduction to the topic, with examples and helpful hints. However, most of the information is available free on internet sites. The book is good as an easily used, single reference, rather than having to deal with multiple internet sites. I would recommend it.

  • I used this text in a class about teaching techniques. It is well-orgainzed and loaded with ideas on effective teaching practices. This would be a great book for newbie or seasoned instructors.

  • Good, but most exercises are pretty hokey.
