Levels of Collaboration: Where Does Your Work Fit In?
Marcoux, Betty L.
School Library Media Activities Monthly, v24 n4 p20-24 Dec 2007
To collaborate is to share--to collaborate at different levels is to share the responsibility for learning with more and more input. In this article, the author lists the academic areas enhanced by collaboration; the characteristics of collaboration behaviors between educators; and the six elements of successful collaboration. She briefly discusses the possibility of collaborating at different levels depending on the task at hand and offers a model of proactive vs. reactive streams of thought in collaboration. Finally, she outlines a Pyramid of Collaboration of the various levels of collaboration and offers a Collaboration Assessment Tool that will allow readers to determine what level best fits the work being done.
