Kooperatives Lernen Im Unterricht An Wirtschaftsstudenten. Ein Schritt Auf Synergiebildung Zu
The aim of following study is to present the idea, principles, working methods and practical applicability of cooperative learning, a relatively new didactic concept used successfully in educational institutions â€" universities included â€" of the United States, Canada and other countries. This didactic method fits for every educational cycle from the preschool level up to the university and is in total accordance with the principles of student-centred education. In contrast to other (traditional) didactic approaches it does not lay emphasis on competition but cooperation among individuals which at the first sight may appear outdated in present world based on fierce competition. However at a closer analysis one may realize that on the labour market general practice is working in teams and not as individual entities. Working as a team member for the sake of the whole group and at a higher level the company/institution, not having in mind just individual interests is not simple at all, this skill must be acquired and trained. With following five principles at its base: positive interdependence, individual and group responsibility, promoting interaction, social skills and permanent group evaluation cooperative learning teaches people how to work efficiently together by stimulating individual and group performance in a way leading to real synergy. After the concise presentation of these five principles the study offers a description of the steps to be undertaken in planning teaching units based on cooperative learning, stages in the teaching process including the presentation and analysis of efficient work techniques. In its final chapter it deals with aspects of practical applicability by presenting the authorâ€(tm)s own experience till now regarding the implementation of teaching units based on cooperative learning in educational institutions in Romania and abroad. Concluding the theoretical aspects and empirical findings presented in this study one may say, that this didactic approach is worth trying further implementation in higher education in our country.
