Collaboration in Education by Judith J. Slater and Ruth Ravid pdf free download. In education there have been attempts to alter the way we institute change in schools. Collaboration, whereas it is not a new idea, has provided the mechanisms that purport to change the way school problems are approached. The atmosphere of collaboration, or the uniting of two or more organizational points of view, has created a synergy of sorts in approaching the overwhelming circumstances of schooling today. Yet, have collaborative efforts provided permanent solutions and new ways of operating? Have they changed the life of schools and universities? Are they suffi cient structures to serve schools in the future? Much work has been done over the years on collaboration between universities and school systems.

Nonetheless, the avenue for dissemination has not been great except for certain confi gurations such as professional development schools (PDS) or large grant funded projects. This situation may be an indicator of the temper of the times which is infused with accountability, testing, effi ciency, and the need for quick results on the part of the school system, and with little reward for such work internally from the university. There are problems also with the dissemination of university–school collaborative efforts, both psychological and practical, and involve at least some of the following aspects: 1. The nature of the professorship and its reward structure produces a time constraint for such work.

Traditionally, the professorate is judged according to criteria of the triumvirate of research, teaching, and service. Research is judged based on a hierarchy of refereed journal publications and grants which are often valued more than that of action research or book production that takes a considerable time to bring to fruition and publication. Collaborations take time away from these more rewarded endeavors, particularly for beginning professors who may be advised to curtail such activities. 2. There is an element of site specifi city involved in collaborations that results in a lack of or perceived lack of transferability.

Each new instance or project has its own culture and organizational climate 2 Judith J. Slater that permeates all interactions that make it diffi cult to inform other projects, sites, and outsiders. 3. Collaborations often involve grant based funding for much of the work. There are questions as to the sustainability of the good work of the collaboration when funding ends.

The issue of sustainability includes: 1. The evolution of projects into secondary and tertiary interactions among participants; whether or not the human connections and new methods of working together will extend beyond the project into the way each organization perceives and works with each other in the future. 2. There is a lack of models/theories in collaboration research that are true calls for praxis rather than the reporting of practice (Slater, 1996).
