Collaborative learning groups are the cornerstone of successful tutorials. Students work together while taking responsibility for their own—and the group’s—learning. Collaborative groups strengthen and enhance students’ listening, thinking, speaking, and writing skills. Students have the opportunity to ask higher-level questions as they work with peers to find answers to problems. The collaborative process provides an opportunity for students to discover new ideas and take ownership of their learning because they are active participants. For true collaboration, students do not have to have the same skills and knowledge. By relying on the strengths of individual group members, the collaborative group creates a positive interdependence and productiveness. The tutor’s role in this process is to serve as a facilitator and to coach students in their learning and questioning of each other. With the encouragement of the tutor, students will feel comfortable enough to openly share their ideas with their peers. It is important that each student understand his/her role as an active participant in the collaborative study group.

Traditional Groups No interdependence No individual accountability Homogeneous One appointed leader Responsibility only for self Social skills ignored Teacher/tutor ignores group functioning No group processing required Collaborative Learning Groups Positive interdependence Individual accountability Heterogeneous Shared leadership Shared responsibility for one another Appropriate social skills are addressed and modeled by the AVID site coordinator/teacher/tutor AVID side coordinator/teacher/tutor observes, monitors, and intervenes Groups process their effectiveness through reflection Activity 14: Describe a time when you had a successful collaborative experience in school. What did it look like, feel like, and sound like?
