Collaborative Conversations Program

Collaborative Conversations

Collaboration is key to effective relationships and relationships are built one conversation at a time. Collaborative conversations are an innovative way for teachers, students and parents to learn together, through focused and constructive dialogue about a topic of shared interest and importance – improving student outcomes.
