Facilitative Collaborative Knowledge Co-Construction. New Directions for Teaching and Learning, Number 143
Collaborative teaching and learning has been a focus of research recently, yet it can sometimes be a challenge for multicultural students in an educational setting. This second volume of a two-volume edition helps lecturers, educators, and teachers create collaborative teaching and learning experiences with multicultural adult learners in higher education. The authors of this volume provide: outlines of some of the positive relationships that can be developed among students and educators when the process of gaining knowledge is seen as a co-constructed process, approaches to relational intelligence and collaborative learning, research from neuropsychology and practical applications to teaching, and characterizations of emotional intelligence and sociocognitive skills needed in collaborative learning environments. Though focused on Asian students and their experiences, this volume includes information for all students and educators who are engaged in the collaborative search for knowledge. This is the 143rd volume of this Jossey-Bass higher education series. It offers a comprehensive range of ideas and techniques for improving college teaching based on the experience of seasoned instructors and the latest findings of educational and psychological researchers.
