Title: Cooperative Learning: A Pedagogy for Addressing Contemporary Challenges
Author: Joe Cuseo
Description: Joe Cuseo's analysis of fourteen critical issues in higher education and how cooperative learning addresses those issues is a must for those interested in improved education. In his review, Joe draws from research and theory on a wide range of sources going well beyond the traditional cooperative- and collaborative-learning literature. Material drawn from communication theory, information processing, management theory, general education, training and development, feminist pedagogy and a host of other areas are brought to bear in addressing the critical concerns which serve as the focal points for Joe s analysis.
