Free classroom resources to assess and develop your students’ collaborative group work skills

Our AQA researchers and the University Of Cambridge Faculty Of Education have teamed up on a project to discover what makes for good collaborative problem solving (CPS).

This has led to the creation of a free collaborative problem solving resource pack complete with video clips to show the skills and techniques needed for good CPS.

Download your pack today to start running your own sessions. If you want to learn more about this project, and watch an interview with Dr Ayesha Ahmed from the University of Cambridge, click here to visit our CPS webpage.
