We achieve more together than we ever can alone: collaboration in learning

I used these words when replying to a comment on a previous post, but they stuck in my mind. In so many things, in so many ways, we achieve more together than we ever can alone: in work, in relationships, in life. I’m just back from a music festival, five days camping in a muddy field, a triumph of teamwork, from the bands, from the organisers, even from the random teams of people pushing cars out of the mud.

Sure, sometimes one artist or author, one adventurer or engineer has a breakthrough, creates something in isolation, but if we look at the wider picture of our lives, we learn so much through collaboration, through bringing together people and ideas.

Where do you collaborate? How do you come together with others, in formal work spaces or informal social ones, to develop ideas, to try out new thoughts, to give each other a push when we’re stuck in the mud.
