This is a preview of a Collaboration Nation survey that will be published this summer. The preview finding being released is that educators tend to blame problems in collaboration on the student rather than on factors related to the class or the school system. "Educators may be guilty of the 'fundamental attribution error,'" write the authors. Worse, "educators tend to respond to students with anger and punishment rather than empathy and support when they believe students are to blame for their performance." They suggest that educators need to provide "explicit skill-building experiences" to support collaboration-based programs.
