CL1 - FAQs: "I thought CL was mainly for women."













"I thought CL was mainly for women."

Women and students of color generally tend to do well in collaborative learning settings that have been properly established. (For example, isolating the few women that may be enrolled in an engineering course from one another by placing them in different learning groups can hamper their academic success.) However, just because women and students of color benefit does not mean or imply that men and majority students can't also profit from collaborative learning. As with the saying, "A rising tide lifts all boats," utilizing several different teaching approaches opens the door to other students who might otherwise not be engaged.
