Daniels (western rural development, Utah State U.) and Walker (speech communications, forest resources, and peace studies, Oregon State U.) are not here suggesting that workers just keep doing their job while the demonstration rages around them. Rather they present Collaborative Learning as a framework for addressing problems with public policy. It moves beyond attempts to balance competing interests, which often generate compromise solutions that satisfy none of the participants, to craft technically competent decisions through processes that create and involve an informed citizenry.
