The term "collaboration" is often used interchangeably with "cooperative learning." However, a more precise definition of collaboration is as follows:
Collaboration is the process of various individuals, groups, or systems working together but at a significantly higher degree than through coordination or cooperation. Collaboration typically involves joint planning, shared resources, and joint resource management. Collaboration occurs through shared understanding of the issues, open communication, mutual trust, and tolerance of differing points of view.  To collaborate is to "co-labor."
With this definition in mind, this workshop will explore the many possibilities for incorporating collaborative activities into our curriculums 


As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Design a collaborative activity appropriate to a course they are teaching 
  • Distinguish between "collaborative" and "cooperative"
  • Explain four types of collaborative activities
