Janet SalmonsLearning to CollaborateThe term collaboration is sometimes used casually to describe almost any situation that involves more than one individual. If we define the term as "an interactive process that engages two or more participants who work together to achieve outcomes they could not accomplish independently" (Salmons, in press), then it is clear that more is involved than simply joining forces. How do we decide what kind of interactive process will allow us to achieve outcomes more significant than what we could do on our own? What steps will improve collaborations when some or all of our interaction occurs online? These are questions Dr. Salmons will explore in the context of co-research, co-editor or co-author collaboration.

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 MethodSpace.com.
