Understanding Cooperative Learning group activities for the development of Education Systems

Cooperative learning is an approach to organize classroom activities into academic and social learning experiences. Although we have an understanding of the group work yet our educational institutions are unable to infuse Cooperative Learning Strategies into our classrooms. Therefore, SHADE is conducting a session on “Understanding Cooperative Learning Group Activities for the development of Education Systems”. This session will help participants to;
·         Explore the difference between traditional and cooperative learning groups
·         Understand the strategies to develop cooperative learning groups
·         Identify the basic elements of cooperative learning
