Learning Cooperatively May Not Be Learning Collaborately!
AbstractThis paper discusses the similarities and differences between cooperative and collaborative learning. The paper emphasizes that the differences represent not only different pedagogical approaches, but different educational philosophies as well. The paper explains why it is important for instructors to understand and appreciate these differences. Finally, the paper goes on to suggest how instructors using simulations and experiential exercises can benefit by understanding their teaching goals and objectives in the light of cooperative and collaborative approaches to teaching and learning.
