Collaborative Learning Versus Traditional Learning Of English As A Foreign Language At The University Level

الكاتب : Amel Bahloul .

الملخص

In this study, i want to explore a vision of the learning and teaching processes where the teacher is no longer considered as the sole source of information. He brings students to knowledge instead ofgiving knowledge to them.my intention is to study the effectiveness of the group investigation technique; a collaborative learning technique, combined with content-based instruction. the outcomes of this research revealed that university students benefited more exposed to collaborative learning approaches in that they showed positive interdependence, personal accountability, social, personal and many other collaborative skills. However, it was difficult to say that any new approach used in the teaching/learning process is any more successful then another. It was then recommended that university EFL courses should integrate both the collaborative learnig and the teacher-controlled approaches to allow a maximum benefit to all learners.
