Ensure Conversations About Collaboration Get Results.
Ask any educational professional about collaboration and chances are they’ll tell you it’s one of their core values. But this familiar sentiment doesn’t always translate into meaningful professional experiences that help educators or their students grow.
Addressing this critical gap head-on, this book lays out the theory and practice of Collaborative Professionalism. Through five international case studies, the authors distinguish Collaborative Professionalism from professional collaboration by highlighting intentional collaborative designs and providing concrete examples for how to be more purposeful with collaboration.
Additionally, the book makes Collaborative Professionalism accessible to all educators through clear take-aways including:
- Ten core tenets, including Collective Efficacy, Collaborative Inquiry, and Collaborating With Students.
- Graphics indicating how educators can move from mere professional collaboration to the deep and transformative work of Collaborative Professionalism.
- Analysis of which collaborative practices educators should start doing, keep doing, and stop doing
Collaboration can be one of your most powerful educational tools when used correctly, and turned into action. This book shows you how.
