Collaboration: Working Together To Support Families. Program Resources.
Padak, Nancy; Sapin, Connie
This paper discusses collaboration as a process that can be used to support adult learners and families. The article distinguishes between collaboration, coordination, and cooperation; suggests ways to find collaborators; lists factors that promote or hinder collaboration; and provides guidelines for working with collaborators. A section on how to do stakeholder mapping (a method used to assess the possible impact of all stakeholders on a given set of goals or a specific plan of action in order to manage change, anticipate opposition from dissatisfied groups, and identify outsiders who may support the change), and a list of eight critical characteristics of successful community collaborators is included. The paper also contains a self-assessment form for rating 18 facets of collaborative behavior and a partner survey to determine the state of communication among collaborators. (KC)
