Section Description

This course applies leadership, adult development, action research and collaborative theory to the practice of collaborative consultation in school, home, agency, and other professional settings. Participants will engage in personal reflection, journal techniques, case study and applied approaches to understand and apply research-based skills in collaborative consultation, including interactive communication, group process, conflict resolution, and facilitation and team building. These collaborative skills and attributes will be analyzed at the personal level as well as at the team and organizational levels. Throughout, we will also consider the ways in which language, culture and implicit bias may influence collaborative interactions among school and other professionals and the peers, family and community members with whom they interact. Additionally, we explore the ways in which collaborative process may be optimized to enhance outcomes for children and youth with and without disabilities, their families, and other constituents within schools and other organizational contexts.

Section Expectation

This is an online course. Some of the course will be delivered in a traditional face-to-face format online and some will be delivered through online or independent learning activities.
