The expansion of post-secondary education (PSE) in recent decades has made the need for cohesion between primary/secondary education (K–12) and PSE more obvious. One way to improve the connectivity of K–12 and PSE is to encourage collegial relationships and collaboration between educators in the two sectors. In collegial environments, K–12 and PSE educators can expand their networks; identify collaborators who contribute to their teaching or development as an educator; and address issues of mutual importance as peers.
This report offers examples for supporting collegial environments in which K–12 and PSE educators can collaborate. It also offers recommendations that policy-makers, K–12 and PSE leaders, and providers of educator professional development can implement to improve the K–12/PSE connection.
