Five dimensions of the collaborative culture

Five Dimensions of the Collaborative Culture

  • A collaborative culture must be built – it is not automatic

  • They are attitudes necessary to carry on a democratic governance structure

  • The 5 C’s, if intentionally developed and nurtured, will make your daily lives more enriched


The collective

The Collective

  • Focuses on the Big Picture

  • Shared Vision and Mission

  • Focuses on larger issues of education - common causes

  • Larger professionalism - professional development plans in conjunction with mission of the school

  • At minimum, focuses on student learning

  • At maximum, focuses on evaluation of performances of all in meeting the mission


The consultative

The Consultative

  • Requires everyone be a consultant to each of the others

  • Stresses inquiry, assessment and problem solving

  • Preoccupation with action research and data sources

  • Not only students present, but teachers as well - to each other and to the education community


The coaching commitment

The Coaching Commitment

  • Both students and teachers are unfinished learners

  • Each teacher has a mentor/coach (may be outside the local community)

  • Continuous improvement through:

    • Evaluation of performance

    • Mentor/coach review and recommendations

    • Results of reviews are shared so that common denominators can be identified for professional development

  • Development of meaningful professional development plans, with coach input


The consensual

The Consensual

  • Demands that decisions are arrived at by consensus/compromise and not majority vote

  • All are heard - all voices are to be valued

  • Everyone ought to rationalize and communicate their opinions in an orderly, respectful way

  • Must use benign abandonment when it appears all are not in agreement – for the good of the community


The community

The Community

  • The ultimate goal of the collaborative culture is to create a humane learning community

  • All learn to live, study, and manage collaboratively together through a governance structure that is procedurally sound and sensible

  • The school community, as a political entity, is continuous with the larger community
