Cooperative Learning CPD


Event Details

Cooperative Learning Target audience

Cooperative Learning is for Primary and secondary teachers across all subjects.


This session demonstrates how simple Cooperative Learning activities may be used across all subjects to generate outstanding teaching and learning.


By attending this course, attending teachers will be able to deploy Cooperative Learning in their classrooms to achieve a variety of goals:

  • Training procedural skills (e.g. Maths, SPaG).
  • Comprehensive reading of any text type.
  • Collaborative creative writing.
  • Activating prior knowledge.
  • Sharing knowledge, reflections, and ideas effectively across class.
  • Retaining / explaining knowledge.
  • Making students aware of their own learning process and knowledge gaps (metacognition).
  • Providing formative and summative assessment.
  • Securing written evidence of learning in peer-to-peer learning.
  • Integrating metacognition, feedback, and learning differentiation.
  • Improving social skills.


This CPD is fully hands-on. Teachers will play the part of pupils, working their way through various tasks, in tandem with ongoing Q&A, reflections, and discussions to integrate what is being taught into their daily work. All strategies can be used immediately the following day, with no change to lesson plans and materials.
