We presuppose that thoughtful pedagogical practice should be included in higher education as much as it is in K–12 classrooms. Effective and purposeful collaborative efforts provide faculty with opportunities to better develop their pedagogical practice. This article describes how collaboration has been utilized at the university level between a full-time faculty member and a K–12 educator from a partnership school district. Discussed here are the ways by which the instructors regularly collaborated, and when possible, incorporated elements of coteaching, to the benefit of the instructors and students alike. Furthermore, discussed are the lessons learned from the process and considerations that should be made when collaborating in higher education.
