Principles and practices of cooperative learning

In this webinar we will look at the two core principles of cooperative learning, and examine why they are important to making pairwork and groupwork effective in the ELT classroom. We will explore a range of cooperative learning activities to illustrate these principles from my recent book Ideas in Action - Activities for Cooperative Learning, part of the new Delta Publishing ‘Ideas in Action’ series that links aspects of pedagogic theory to practice and supports teachers in developing their own materials based on such theory. There will be plenty of time for your questions, comments and critique in this interactive webinar.
