University/School Collaboration: A Case Study.
Clarken, Rodney H.
This paper describes the elements of university-school collaboration based on several field experiences that university students have had in area schools in connection with education classes often taught in those schools. These elements can serve as a guide to determine a university's or school's readiness for collaboration and identify potential barriers to success. This report presents the processes, elements, and characteristics necessary for collaboration, which include: trust/responsibility; time/commitment; accountability; mutuality/reciprocity; choice/ownership/meaningfulness; shared vision/beliefs; flexibility/adaptability; challenge/openness to growth; respect; and communication/sensitivity. After a discussion of each issue, the report presents thought-provoking questions to facilitate the deliberation of each issue within a collaborative relationship. (SM)
