Reflection in 3’s: Tips, Lessons, and Advice
This activity is an opportunity to reflect individually and then collectively on the process of collaboration. As participants have just experienced, building, organizing, and operating “successful” collaborations is not always easy. This reflection helps individuals and groups to articulate tips, lessons, and advice drawn from their recent collaborative experiences. Documentation of this discussion might help others who are just embarking on their own collaborations.
Consider the following questions first as individuals, and then compare responses as a group and use the questions to guide your collective discussion. Document your responses as much as desired.
1. What are three pieces of advice you would give to someone who was about to enter into a collaboration?
2. What does it take to build a successful collaboration?
3. What are three “red flags” or warning signs that a collaboration is not working?
