The value of collaboration

The ability to collaborate is indispensable in most work environments. The value of collaboration, as a means of seeking out external sources for gathering critical data, is integral to any business performance. Modern constructivist educators understand its importance and incorporate opportunities for collaboration into their assessment activities.

Like feedback and discussion, collaboration too, even though integral to the real world, has only recently been explicitly acknowledged in the behaviourist-dominated pedagogies. In successful collaborative assessment activities, educators engage student’s communication skills and teamwork skills, which are often critical to successful performance in modern work environments.
