Today’s #curiouscolab chat is focusing on building collaborative partnerships. To me this is “network building”.

It’s something I’ve focused on for almost two decades, but have not been nearly as successful in the actual application.

On the Tutor/Mentor blog I count 171 articles since 2005 that are tagged “network building”.  Here’s one from last August.

Here’s another from 2009, where I quote Valdis Krebs, in saying “know the net, then nudge the net”.

EBT-BellingerAnother set of articles on the Tutor/Mentor  blog focuses on Systems Thinking. This graphic is shown on this article and describes a process that involves collaboration.

I hope these articles provide a rich and on-going library of ideas for those trying to bring people together to do important work.
