Jane Hart is one of the people in my PLN--I read her blog and follow her Twitter feeds about social learning. In this blog, she talks about the need for a "Chief Collaboration Officer" in organizations. Yes, absolutely. She asks, "Who would be your CCO?" I wonder, how long will it take for organizations to value collaboration? It is a skill/habit of mind that is valued in K-12 education. Engineering departments at colleges have been among the first in higher ed to embrace collaboration because they understand how important it is for the practice of engineering after school. But what about organizations and even higher ed administration. What will it take for them to get there?
