Professional partnerships in a local and global context
What are the conditions for a successful collaboration between professional partners? How to engage in a collaboration? Objective of this research project was to design a model in which partners could reach mutual agreement and understanding about their definitions of quality and values.
Evaluation of a number of collaborative pilot projects in the past made clear that better results might have been achieved if the quality and nature of the partnerships had been addressed in a different way.
In collaborative projects between professional art education and external partners there is often a lack of good forms of evaluation. Based on his research Peter Renshaw wrote a book about how to assess what quality is exactly in working partnerships.
