This Is My Truth, Tell Me Yours: Exploring the Internal Tensions within Collaborative Learning Disability Research
McClimens, Alex
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, v36 n4 p271-276 Dec 2008
Collaboration within the research and publishing process provides opportunities for shared learning and increased knowledge production and dissemination. It can also provide opportunities for conflict if the contributors are divided over issues of authority and authorship. While this situation can be managed, the potential for misunderstanding to arise is heightened when the combination of academics/professionals and individuals labelled with learning disability work together. The scenario described here outlines some of the difficulties that can threaten successful collaboration. Possible remedies are suggested.
