Mohammad Reza Keramati
Associate professor, University of Tehran
The present article was designed to identify the perception of 28 undergraduate students of counseling about the implementation of cooperative learning in class. The participants, who were 24 women and 4 men, volunteered to participate in the study. The semi-structured interview was the main tool for research. In order to analysis the data thematic analysis was used. Participant’s experience showed that cooperative learning not only facilitates students' learning process in primary and secondary education course and improves the quality of learning, but also enhances self-confidence and positive emotions, critical thinking (control of emotions and mood, discussion, brainstorming, and self-assessment), effective interaction, and the development of sense of responsibility and leadership are also effective. Faculty members' familiarity with cooperative learning and continuous monitoring during student interaction can improve the quality of its implementation in university classes.
