EDU 689 EDU689 Week 5 DQ 1 Collaborate Decision Making (Ashford)
Collaborative Decision Making [CLOs: 1, 3, 4]. 1st Post Due by Day 3. Being an ethical leader includes an ability to work collaboratively with all stakeholders affected by the difficult issues that are often seen in educational practice. To prepare for this discussion, view the Koschmann (2012) video and notice how he defines the competing forces within any collaborative effort as collaborative advantage and collaborative inertia. The Koschmann (2012) video is 16:33 in length and explores the ability leaders have in making ethical and sustainable decisions involving relevant stakeholders in meaningful ways.
Initial Post: Construct an initial response that explains what the phrases “Collaborative Advantage” and “Collaborative Inertia” mean from the Koschmann (2012) video. Your explanation needs to address what these phrases mean to you in relation to educational leadership. Additionally, describe an example from your work
experience where multiple stakeholder groups were required to come together on a difficult decision and how you overcame collaborative inertia in order to make a collaborative decision. If known, describe how the decision was carried out and sustained. If you do not currently hold a leadership position, you can construct a hypothetical situation, use an example from prior experience, or describe one that you are aware of happening at your school or organization.
Guided Response: Respond to at least two peers. Consider asking questions of peers about their responses to encourage further conversation. If you have found yourself in the same position, how did you overcome the collaborative inertia? If you have not been in the same position, can you think of any alternative strategies that could have been used to overcome the collaborative inertia? As with previous discussions in our course, though two responses is the basic expectation, for deeper engagement and learning, you are encouraged to provide responses to any comments or questions others have given to you, including the instructor, to further the conversation while giving you opportunities to further demonstrate your content expertise, critical thinking, and real world experiences with this topic.
