Collaborative learning in 3 questions

Our interactions with our peers are often prolific opportunities to learn, and this is even more valid when they are done in a collaborative mode. That’s why it’s a good idea to integrate “collaborative” learning into the range of pedagogical approaches, a model that is particularly suitable for adult learners and that can also be adapted to online training. Let’s demystify it in 3 questions. In short, what is collaborative learning?

Here is a definition of collaborative learning from France Henri and Karin Lundgren-Cayrol (2003) that can be used in both face-to-face and distance modes:

“Collaborative learning is an active approach in which the learner works on building his or her knowledge. […] The learner is committed to working with group members towards a common goal while balancing personal interests and objectives […]. Exchanges with the group and the regulation of a collective task allow the learner to share his or her discoveries, negotiate the meaning to be given to his or her work and validate his or her newly constructed knowledge.”
