Collaborative learning is a process of having two or more learners work together to learn. Compose small groups’ participants of differing ability levels and used a variety of activities to master material initially developed by an instructor, or construct knowledge on substantive issues. Each team member is responsible for learning what is taught and for helping teammates learn.
Lean into collaborative learning when teaching online. It is possible and quite powerful for students to work with each other online.
