Collaboration is a team-based professional partnership in which structured but shared problem-solving processes are used to reach a common goal. This chapter highlights theoretical frameworks and collaboration models. Barriers to communication are discussed as well as various collaboration models. Project-based collaboration is described as well as ways to be effective within this model. Case-based learning collaboration is also discussed. A final evidence-based model for collaboration in communities of practice that can supplement based on case-based instruction using teacher discussion and participatory learning is presented. Communities of practice have been defined by Kirchnera and Laib as environments where individuals who share common interests regarding a problem or subject exchange ideas, develop solutions, and construct knowledge as part of an ongoing social learning process that occurs over a long period of time.
