Summary: "Collaborative working is an increasingly vital part of Higher Education academic life. Traditionally, university culture supported individual research and scholarship. Today, the focus has shifted from the individual to the group or team. Collaborative Working in Higher Education takes the reader on a journey of examination, discussion and reflection of emerging collaborative practices. The book offers suggestions for developing practice via an overview of the key aspects of collaboration and collaborative working, informed by focused case studies and the contributors' international perspectives."--BOOK JACKET.
