Collaborative learning activities immerse students in challenging tasks or questions. It also increases student retention and promotion of student-teacher interaction and develops in students higher order reasoning and problem-solving skills. So, if you are a teacher you must include collaborative learning in your classes for efficacious learning outcomes. Join our webinar to know some collaborative learning strategies.
