Collaboration is a twenty-first century skill across professions and disciplines. There is a clear need for collaboration in education to enable quality and coherence in the design and implementation of programs (Norton, Sonnemann & Cherastidtham, 2013; Jones, Lefoe, Harvey & Ryland, 2012; Zundans-Fraser, 2014). The commentary claims and empirical research in this literature review addressed the challenge and supported the need to identify and study the components or phenomena of effective collaboration and their interactions.
