Collaborative Assignments and Projects Collaborative Assignments and Projects as a High-Impact Learning Practice (from AAC&U): "Collaborative learning combines two key goals: learning to work and solve problems in the company of others, and sharpening one’s own understanding by listening seriously to the insights of others, especially those with different backgrounds and life experiences. Approaches range from study groups within a course, to team-based assignments and writing, to cooperative projects and research."
