An Experimental Test of Cooperative Learning with Faculty Members as Subjects
Journal of Education for Business
This article describes a test for the efficacy of a jigsaw structure of cooperative learning in a laboratory experiment. University faculty subjects are exposed to both traditional (passive) and cooperative (active) learning. Findings indicate that faculty subjects perceive that cooperative learning contributes to classroom goodwill and achievement. Additionally, actual achievement scores for faculty subjects are significantly higher on an examination taken after a cooperative learning lesson as compared with those taken after a lecture.
