Cooperative learning is a teaching strategy in which small, diverse groups of learners use a variety of learning activities to improve their understanding of a subject. Each group member is responsible not only for learning what is taught but also for helping each other learn, thus creating an atmosphere of achievement. Learners work through a task until all group members successfully understand and complete it. The philosophy behind cooperative learning is to ensure that learners, when working in groups, have equal participation and are individually accountable for their own learning.
