In building upon the first lesson, we now explore to how collaboration occurs. Understanding how collaboration takes place in the contemporary problem domain has been of keen interest to scholars. We start this lesson by presenting general elements of collaboration. These common elements are synthesized from scholarly works that have conceptualized various forms of working together (e.g., Selin & Chavez, 1995; Plummer & FitzGibbon, 2004; Ansell & Gash, 2008). Thereafter, we shift our attention to features specific to a type of collaboration and consider how they occur in practice through a series of case studies.
