Educators are no longer able to work in isolation from one another. K-12 schools and universities are embracing the need for collaborative efforts among and between faculty. Interdisciplinary collaboration, in which faculty from various disciplines work with one another to promote connections between otherwise separate curricula, is one of the ways in which educators are making these efforts. Another example of collaboration is that between faculty at the K-12 level and university faculty. In other instances, the need for consultation emerges; consultation has traditionally inferred a triadic relationship between the person with expertise as the consultant, a consultee, and a client, but the emergence of collaborative consultation provides a sense of parity between consultant and consultee.
