Summary
"Group learning is about getting people to work together well, and can be one of the most valuable and natural methods of learning. The key to working and learning with other people is the ability of the lecturer, trainer or facilitator to lower barriers and encourage collaboration. This book provides that key, and will ensure that people are enabled to work together, both in training contexts and in formal educational situations." "This is an essential book for all those with a critical interest in effective learning and in helping students or trainees to learn from one another."--BOOK JACKET
