ASIS Midyear '98 Proceedings

Collaboration Across Boundaries:
Theories, Strategies, and Technology

Teaching Collaborative Skills


Educational theories emphasize active and constructive learning that suggests learners should not be passive recipients of information. Through interaction with others and application of new information in relevant situations, students can integrate new information into their existing knowledge structures. Sonnenwald will report on her experiences in teaching a UNC course on collaboration in collaboration with Mirja Iivonen at the University of Oulu, Finland. Agada will describe a 10-step process used to teach collaborative skills to LIS students working in teams.
