Cooperative Learning
http://mcli.maricopa.edu/

This valuable site on cooperative learning contains models, theories and research; cooperative learning syllabi and teachers; the classroom context for cooperative learning; cooperative learning lessons and activities; faculty training and development; and further resources. Maintained by Susan Ledlow, Arizona State University, with Neil Davidson, University of Maryland, as liaison, large portions of the site are still under construction. Nonetheless, it is well worth a visit.

Resources in Science & Engineering Education
http://www4.ncsu.edu/unity/lockers/users/f/felder/public/ILSpage.html
Richard Felder's wonderful web site contains a wealth of articles, advice, and research to promote better teaching, particularly in the sciences. Dr. Felder's home page declares: There are well-defined instructional techniques that make teaching more effective. These techniques can be introduced slowly and methodically, without compromising coverage of the syllabus. Many do not require large expenditures of money, time, and effort. Most importantly, the techniques have been validated by careful, documented, repeatable research. Their effectiveness is not simply a matter of opinion. They work! This Web site offers guidance on what those techniques are and tips and resources for using them. Dr. Felder has included over forty articles published as a column, "Random Thoughts," in Chemical Engineering Education, including his well-known, "We Never Said It would be Easy," on group work caveats. Also recommended is Felder and Brent's: "Cooperative Learning in Technical Courses: Procedures, Pitfalls, and Payoffs. " The complete list of URLs recommended by Millis will be available to participants of the March 13 Webcast which will take place at 12 Noon EST.

Training Site
www.KaganOnline.com
This is a great product, training, and resource site for anyone interested in Cooperative Learning, reaching standards, and teaching strategies in elementary and/or secondary teaching. However the applications can be used for college students and there are graduate courses offered in Cooperative Learning and Multiple Intelligences.
