Teachers who use collaborative learning approaches tend to provide a stimulating intellectual experience for the students as collaborative learning (CL) is an emergent educational approach to teach a group of students working in pairs or small groups to discuss concepts or find solutions to problems.

Full of knowledge and useful information, suggestion for lesson plan and ideas for support learning. The knowledge, as mother and "home" teacher was incomplete, after this course I'm feel more comfortable in these topics.

It was hard work but I learned a lot. Because of this it was well worth it and I am well on my way to succeeding in my goal to become an English teacher in Asia. Instead of being scared as I previously was, I am only a little bit nervous now that I have this experience under my belt.
