Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1990 
23 p. 

The collaboration of universities and schools/school districts has often been proposed as an effective force for reviewing the quality of the schools and the education of the educators. A study of a workshop that was a major collaborative event in an ongoing university-schools partnership illustrated that symbiotic and organic cooperation is functioning in the Brigham Young University-Public School Partnership, which was initiated in 1984. A Linking Workshop in 1989 provided 16 hours of intensive interaction between university and elementary school educators during a 2-day period. Participants included 24 university professors, 8 principals, and 88 teachers. Interviews and reviews of documents generated during the conference were used to evaluate the program in terms of: (1) common goal; (2) participants and participation; (3) equity and trust; and (4) self-interest and selflessness. Analyses of qualitative and quantitative data from the workshop showed high levels of agreement on common educational renewal goals and participation by university and school personnel in all aspects of the collaborative effort. Acceptance of professional equity was evident, and mutual self-interest and selflessness were apparent. The requirements for such collaboration are discussed. Three tables contain data from the analysis. (SLD)
