Summary:

How do multi-racial groups work together, learn together, and solve problems together? This question confronts diverse groups undertaking collaborative learning projects in many different sites: universities, workplaces, training academies, and community organizations. For seven years when Lani Guinier and Susan Sturm were on the faculty at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, we participated in a collaborative project of building a multi-racial learning community in a law school classroom. The structure, format, and methods of the seminar enabled an extraordinarily open, engaged, and exciting dynamic to develop within a law school environment that typically is surprisingly resistant to and silencing of open discussion of race and gender. Over time, we witnessed and actively attempted to foster the development of a site for experimentation, learning, and problem solving around issues of social justice and social change.
