Why is it relevant?

We are surrounded by thousands of people, all with different perspectives and standpoints on various topics and subject matters. What happens when you are placed in a position with someone of opposing viewpoints? As you know the situation can get tenuous. If the person knows how to deal with the situation and has the ability to collaborate, join forces and pool resources together. The person has an easier time integrating and understanding the other person’s position and therefore allows both individuals the ability to voice their opinions and openly work together towards a common goal. To take it a little further, the idea behind collaboration is giving a person the ability to view information from many angles. Allowing them to see you or understand something that was not recognized before. Knowing how to collaborate established a foundation for more than just one skill. It plays on skills such as communication, time management, problem-solving, resource allocation and many more. The benefits of collaborations are endless.

It goes without saying that collaboration and cooperation between various professional actors are a crucial element in promoting inclusive practices in the classroom when it comes to teaching children and young people with special needs or with a migration or refugee background whose command of the native language of their country of residence often lags behind that of their peers and is at worst inexistent.

We have chosen 2 aspects of collaborative learning: co-teaching and feedback. Both examples can be used by teachers outside and inside the classroom, for cooperation between teachers, pedagogues but as well for working with students and pupils.
