This paper details relevant strategies and models utilised in the planning and execution of the Networked Learning Project. The Networked Learning Project is a collaborative partnership involving primarily regional TAFE Queensland Institutes that aims to improve the availability of training services to regional Queensland. TAFE Queensland Institutes have traditionally focussed on their own business or territories, resulting in offerings limited to the capability of one Institute. The Networked Learning Project is improving equity of access to a wide range of training services across regional Queensland through collaboration. It utilises Kotter's change management model, communities of practice and vritual teaming. The paper then discusses of the findings of ongoing evaluation of the project that identify issues such as the need for continuing development of social capital. A collaborative model created by the Cairns Human Services Collaboration Project Group is identified as another relevant tool that could be incorporated in future planning.
