What is Cooperative Learning?
Cooperative learning is an approach to gaining knowledge that utilizes the benefits of people working together to solve problems. Studying with a group can often be more helpful and more effective than studying as an individual. When individuals engage in group learning, they are exposed to ideas and strategies that they would otherwise not have experienced on their own. The Writing Center offers two opportunities for students to engage in cooperative learning: Tutor Facilitated Study Groups and ESL Conversation Groups.
Tutor Facilitated Study Groups are for students interested in starting study groups with tutors. Students can arrange to meet with a lab tutor to experience the benefits of collaborative study.

ESL Conversation Groups
are for international students who wish to collaborate in study groups. These groups are informal ways for students of different languages to understand idioms and colloquial terms used in English. We help international students feel comfortable and confident speaking in discussion groups for class or in everyday life.
To join a conversation group, contact Lydia Rucker at 405-682-1611 ex. 7105 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
