Collaboration in Education: The Phenomenon and Process of Working Together
Goulet, Linda; Krentz, Caroline; Christiansen, Helen
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v49 n4 p325-340 Win 2003
In this article we propose a model for collaboration in education. We begin by examining the roots of collaboration in consultation, collegiality, and cooperation. We then delineate the features of collaboration as phenomenon and process, offering the view that through talk, action, and reflection among individuals a community of learners emerges. Finally, we suggest that collaboration can create a space that enables us to challenge taken-for-granted ways of working together and to bring about transformation in educational practice.
