SECTION 1



COLLABORATION




Collaboration is working together to solve a problem or to achieve a goal.
Collaboration takes place between individuals, organizations, and even
governments to tackle shared goals and objectives. Sharing of knowledge,
expertise, and manual labor may be required in any collaborative venture
or endeavor.

WHAT IS
COLLABORATION?




Collaboration enables individuals to work together to achieve a defined
and common business purpose. It exists in two forms:



Synchronous,

where everyone interacts in real time, as in online meetings, through
instant messaging, or via Skype,



Asynchronous,

where the interaction can be time-shifted, as when uploading documents
or annotations to shared workspaces, or making contributions to a wiki

Shared workspaces are among the most visible entries in the collaboration
space. Aimed at rolling document and application sharing up with chat and
perhaps versioning and other auditing capabilities, they may have more or
fewer features, and may be available either for license or on a syndicated
basis “in the cloud,” as they say. Google Docs is a notable example of the
latter, Microsoft SharePoint and EMC Documentum eRoom of the former.

Wikis are perhaps best thought of as online encyclopedias or “how-to” manuals.
They are applications that let users freely create, edit, and reorganize
content using a Web browser. Perhaps the most visible example of this breed
is Wikipedia, and variants exist throughout enterprises of all kinds and sizes.

The plus and the minus of wikis are that more or less anyone can enter anything
into the resource – so while they’re a great way to capture and share what people
know, they also must be vetted to ensure nothing erroneous gets planted within
(intentionally or otherwise). The good news is that, over time, active wikis tend
to be of fairly high quality due to the self-policing nature of an engaged user
base.



Collaboration at the conceptual level, involves:

Awareness

We become part of a working entity with a shared purpose


Motivation

We drive to gain consensus in problem solving or development


Self-synchronization

We decide as individuals when things need to happen


Participation

We participate in collaboration and we expect others to participate


Mediation

We negotiate and we collaborate together and find a middle point


Reciprocity

We share and we expect sharing in return through reciprocity


Reflection

We think and we consider alternatives


Engagement

We proactively engage rather than wait and see


Collaboration relies on openness and knowledge sharing but also some level
of focus and accountability on the part of the business organizations.
Governance should be established addressing the creation and closing of
team workspaces with assignment of responsibility for capturing the emergent
results of the collaborative effort.

TOP 5 WAYS
TO TEACH
COLLABORATION?




The ability to work in groups and collaborate is one of those 21st century skills
that teachers try to instill alongside all the other curriculum necessities.

It is also a skill that teachers constantly struggle to pass on to their students.
It is not an impossible task, however. Consider these methods for building
collaboration in your classroom:

1. Teach your students how to ask questions. The art of questioning is not just
knowing how to word questions so that they get clear answers, but also knowing
what to ask. By helping our students learn this invaluable communication skill,
we greatly ease their ability to work together.

2. Teach through the conflict. Instead of seeing conflict as something that you
must immediately step in the middle of and put a stop to, see conflict as an
opportunity. When students work in groups plan for conflicts to arise and plan
enough time in order to help students mediate them, providing guidance where
necessary and stopping short of mandating a resolution.

3. Plan activities that require deep thinking and complex problem solving.
By definition, these types of group work activities will not be possible with
just one person involved. Many people will need to work together in order to
accomplish their goal and authentic collaboration will emerge because of it.

4. Model collaboration for your students. Teachers should never expect students
to do that which they are unable to do themselves. Set a good example for
collaboration by working with other teachers and faculty members often. Talk
about your planning sessions and your experiences working with other teachers
together, and allow them to experience the rich interdisciplinary results of such
collaboration. This way they will both see the how and the why of collaboration.

5. Reflect with your class after sessions where they had a chance to collaborate.
One of the ways we learn is through reflection. As you complete a learning task
involving collaboration, spend some time in closing the task by guiding your
students through not just the day’s work, but how they worked together. As often
as possible call on both good and bad examples of collaboration you saw, always
being sensitive not to embarrass your students.

PRINCIPLES
OF
COLLABORATION




1. Participation

You want to encourage participation from across your organization.
As we’ve seen from the experiment, this could involve you removing,
or at least educating, people that don’t act collaboratively.


2. Collective

As collaboration will involve taken relatively narrow perspectives
and making them broad, you will need to help the group reach a
consensus and then take action collectively on the decisions they
make.


3. Transparency

Feedback and trust are essential elements of collaboration. Being
transparent with information is crucial if that is to be achieved.
Make sure that all debates are had in the open and that the entire
group has access to the latest information.


4. Independence

James Surowiecki emphasized the importance of independent thought
in his book Wisdom of Crowds, so you’ll need to ensure that group
-think does not emerge and that people are thinking for themselves.


5. Persistence

You will need to be persistent in your application of these principles,
to ensure that all content is kept within the community and easily
accessible to all members.


6. Emergence

Remember that the point of mass collaboration is to achieve great results,
so ensure you focus on the end goal rather than worrying about how that is
achieved. You will need your collaborative community to set their own goals
and objectives.
