"Collaborating is a highly effective skill we develop and use throughout our lives … until we become faculty." Thus the authors begin their journey into yet another in their popular "It Works" series that include: It Works for Me! Shared Tips for Teaching It Works for Me, Too! More Shared Tips for Teaching It Works for Me, Online! Shared Tips for Online and Web-Enhanced Teaching Everyone in the following pages—the authors’ collaborators—has found some area of academia that has been improved through the use of collaboration. The book begins by presenting some general tips about collaboration, then moves to more specific experiences: faculty-faculty, faculty-student, and faculty-community. Those areas are broken down into designing and teaching classes, writing for publication, developing learning communities, and university-community partnerships. The emphasis in this book, as well as in the authors’ previous three in the series, is on the practical, not the theoretical. The various authors share real-world academic experiences that have truly worked for them and others. If you have read Hal Blythe and Charlie Sweet’s other titles in the "It Works" series, you know you will profit from this new title. If you have not, now is the time to begin!
