eSchool News Webinar: Strategies for Creating a Successful Collaborative Learning Environment

eSchool News Webinar: Strategies for Creating a Successful Collaborative Learning Environment

An effective instructional strategy on its own merits, collaborative learning demonstrated some additional benefits during the COVID-19 pandemic—for instance, it provided a much-needed sense of connectedness and social interaction among students, and with the right digital technology, was able to be moved seamlessly to a virtual environment. Collaborative learning can increase student retention and learning, enhance self-confidence, and empower students with skills that will prepare them for lifelong success, in the workplace and beyond.

In this webinar, our panel of educators discusses best practices—and pitfalls to avoid—when implementing or improving your collaborative classroom, and why professional training can be so valuable in supporting educators with the tools they need to use this instructional strategy effectively. Presented by Infobase & eSchool News.
