by coordination and communication

Dear all,

I read this sentence from an essay:

Students learn to handle real life situations by coordination and communication, which will also be useful in workplaces.

1. Is the use of 'coordination and communication' correct in the above sentence?

I'm not sure because I normally use present participles after 'by'.

2. If the above sentence is correct, I think '... by cooperation and communication...' is better, do you agree?

Thank you and happy Easter!

    It's odd, that's all.



    What does this mean?



    ... in the workplace, perhaps.

    Anyway, I agree, cooperation is better than coordination (as above).
    Hi dermott, so 'Students learn to handle real life situations by cooperation and communication...' is correct, right (at least this part of the sentence)?
    Thank you!
