Although there is currently no widely accepted [[general theory of collaboration]], there are many theoretical approaches to collaborative practice that have been developed within a wide variety of disciplines. == Collaboration Theories == * General ** Mark Elliott's PhD dissertation includes a generalized framework for collaboration, as well as collective activity in general. This framework is marked by the distinction between coordination, cooperation and collaboration, with each activity being dependent upon the previous while addressing increased levels of complexity. These principles are outline on [http://mark-elliott.net/view/Dissertation/CollaborationDissertation#FigureTwoThree this diagram].
