Janet SalmonsLearning to CollaborateWriting is deeply personal. But unless we are writing research memos or journal entries, we will have to cooperate with reviewers, editors, and others to get our work published. As faculty supervising students, writing program staff, trainers or consultants, we have the opportunity to help aspiring writers to work more collaboratively. Using the term collaboration to describe "an interactive process that engages two or more participants who work together to achieve outcomes they could not accomplish independently" (Salmons, in press), we will explore ways to develop skills valuable to writers. We will look at ways to use review exchanges, writing circles, support teams and other approaches to improve writing while learning to work collaboratively. Practical strategies will be offered for classroom, committee, or informal learning settings.

Dr. Janet Salmons is a free-range scholar, writer, and coach. She the author of the forthcoming book, Learning to Collaborate, Collaborating to Learn, as well as Doing Qualitative Research Online, and numerous chapters and articles. She is the Methods Guru and on SAGE
