This landmark book introduces the concepts and principles of collaborative learning and then goes on to present specific techniques and exercises organized according to learning objectives. It explains how to form groups, assign roles, build team spirit, deal with problems, and promote and assess participation. Each exercise is carefully described and illustrated through examples, and is accompanied by critical information regarding its complexity, time needed to complete it, variations, appropriate locations, and pointers for effective use.
