Engagement… Collaborative Learning!

Leave a comment

Cristal found an amazing website, by Brigham Young University, on collaborative learning: http://ctl.byu.edu/collaborative-learning/
Engagement, one of the 3 UDL Principles (Engagement, Representation, and Expression), is all about getting students interested, hooking the content of the lesson to their previous knowledge, and letting them feel comfortable and happy – the best environment for deep learning. Collaborative learning is a wonderful way to enhance Engagement in students.
The site has some great examples of different collaborative learning activities. Make sure to check out the link entitled “Hear more from Prof. Janet Young on collaborative learning,” (http://ctl.byu.edu/?page_id=4601&preview=true). It is especially insightful from a faculty member’s perspective.
Hope you enjoy!
