Bridging Differences into Strengths: Strategies for Celebrating Uniqueness and Empathetic Education
Robinett, Jeremy; Scheunemann, Jarrod
Schole: A Journal of Leisure Studies and Recreation Education, v31 n1 2016
It has been suggested that collaborative research often involves bridging divides that may exist between academics, practitioners, and community agencies. The purpose of this article is to outline strategies we find beneficial for negotiating spaces where everyone involved has some claim as an expert. Our goal is to provide examples of specific behaviors we have adopted to bridge differences into strengths throughout our projects. Our ability to work together has been peppered with many experiences that have taught us to practice two key strategies: celebrating our uniqueness and empathetically educating others and ourselves.
