This paper introduces an effective project-oriented cooperative learning strategy that is applied to computer networking class. Computer networking is a critical class for students in Computer Science (CS) and Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) majors. To significantly improve student’s learning experience and outcomes, we integrate cooperative learning and project-oriented teaching strategy in the computer networking class. In this paper, a specific project, e.g., Network Address Translation, serves as an example to illustrate the cooperative learning strategy. The traditional instructional methods are adopted in one class while the cooperative instruction strategy is applied in another class. We observe that students under cooperative learning have a much deeper understanding on the topics of networking and show more interests in studying.
