  • Teaching Collaboration: Collaborative public management, networks, governance, and problem solving have become essential topics in most public management and public policy programs. One of the best ways to prepare students to operate in a collaborative world is through the use of case studies, simulations, and negotiation exercises. These resources were designed for use in teaching collaboration skills, and were selected through an annual competition sponsored by the Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration (PARCC) at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University.
