LAP Lambert Academic Publishing Collaborative learning represents a significant shift away from the typical teacher centered or lecture-centered in college classrooms.In collaborative classrooms, the lecturing,listening,note-taking process may not disappear entirely, but it lives alongside other processes that are based on students’ discussion and active work with the course material. Teachers who use collaborative learning approaches tend to think of themselves less as expert transmitters of knowledge to students, and more as expert designers of intellectual experiences for students-as coaches or mid-wives of a more emergent learning process. A new understanding of learning places the learner at the centre of the learning process, with the teacher serving an important supporting role in facilitating the process In this new paradigm, successful learning is measured by the individual’s ability to apply appropriate tools and information to solve problems in real life.
