Engaging All Students Through Cooperative Learning

3 Credits
The focus of this course is promoting the active engagement of all students by embedding cooperative structures into daily instruction. Participants will gain a foundational understanding of cooperative learning at both the theoretical and implementation levels. Participants will engage in a variety of learning activities such as reading the works of leading theorists, creating original definitions and rationale for use of cooperative learning, and planning and implementing cooperative learning lessons with students. A written reflection of experiences, analysis, a plan for future implementation, and sharing of new information with colleagues will complete the course requirements. Learning activities are designed to challenge your thinking as you consider your own work with students. Assignments will have direct application to your teaching situation.

NOTE: Required textbook must be purchased separately.

This course is applicable towards the Student Engagement Certificate.
