Collaborative Learning


Collaborative learning is an educational approach that involves two or more people learning or attempting to learn something together, allowing them to capitalise on one another's resources and skills.


Every group is diverse in its makeup. Most will have a mix of outspoken students and quiet students.

Integrating some of the following strategies into your teaching program will encourage everyone to become involved, and can be a valuable source of motivation for students.

  • Peer Modelling
  • Timed Pairs
  • The Scavenger Hunt
  • Debates
  • Learning Groups
  • Turned On, Turned In
  • Pass the Problem
  • Forming Groups Creatively


Your Learning and Teaching Consultant can suggest ways of integrating collaborative learning strategies into your teaching practice.
