Crow, Tracy
Journal of Staff Development, v36 n3 p10-12 Jun 2015

Every school has an enormous body of expertise, and educators need meaningful opportunities to tap into that expertise every day.

What do lead learners need to consider? This article discusses several critical factors in supporting meaningful collaboration.
