Many cooperative learning strategies involve game-based mechanics, wherein students are split into teams and participate in fun, engaging academic activities. The current chapter discusses game-based cooperative learning strategies such as Teams-Games-Tournaments, with a particular emphasis on how to select students for teams, whether to include competitive elements, and how to establish and maintain motivation and team cohesion. Sample scripts and training materials are included. Considerations of diversity and equity are also discussed in the context of game-based cooperative learning.
