Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1983 
21 p. 
Summary

Benefits of collaborative learning as achieved in peer tutoring approaches are considered, and the suggestion is made that partner learning may be just as beneficial for disabled and normal adults as it is for children. Research is reviewed on the benefits of partner learning for all parties involved: for the tutee (increased individualized attention, increased contact and opportunity for closeness with the instructor and corresponding learning efficiency, influence of a role model, and gains in self-esteem); for the tutor (increased subject area knowledge, improved social skills and self-esteem, and the opportunity to help others); and for the teacher (help with individualized instruction, increased attention for low performers, cost-effectiveness, and increased positive interactions between teachers and students). Research on partner learning effects on adults is limited, but the possibilities for effective use of adult teaming situations should be considered. (CL)
