Workshop: Doing Science in a Team? Learn about the Science of Team Science
Monday, April 8th, 12 PM – 1:30 PM
Talley Student Union, Room 3221
Event Description: This interactive 90-minute workshop has two goals: (1) To invite participants to consider how their interactions with others during the preparation, conducting, or writing of research is cross-disciplinary, multi-disciplinary, interdisciplinary, of transdisciplinary, and (2) to offer recommendations on how to better manage interactions with team members who represent a discipline other than you own.
The Science of Team Science (SCiTS) is a relatively new movement to help scholars manage their interactions across disciplines. This workshop will offer effective strategies for implementing and sustaining team science on your research projects. Whether you manage science teams, or are a member of one, this workshop can you help identify when and how to evaluate the antecedent conditions, collaborative processes, and outcomes associated with team science (and valued by grant makers).
