Vertebrate and animal development subjects are covered in Zoology courses in the University of Palangka Raya which is learned in third and fourth semester. These subjects differ in content. Vertebrate course covers animal structure, while animal development course is more about the process of development. Today's learning demands is to develop a critical thinking and build social interaction among students. Collaborative learning incorporating digital media through Lesson Study (LS) was implemented to improve learning outcomes in both subjects. Collaborative learning demands students to be self-minded, cooperative, and able to reveal thoughts mutually to their classmates to be employed for the above-mentioned purpose. The implementation of collaborative learning through LS was done with four cycles of 'Plan, Do, and See' in Vertebrate and Animal Development subjects. These aimed to enhance student's activities and critical thinking capabilities. The studied result showed improvement of activities in problem analysis stage, discussion and delivery of discussion results for zoology courses according to implementation of collaborative learning through LS cycles. Critical thinking capability of students was detected better in both subjects, mainly in the capability of conclusion drawing and presenting discussion results from assignments which were conducted by the aid of digital media. Collaborative learning incorporating digital media through LS could enhance activities and critical thinking capabilities of students.
