Collaboration skills are an increasingly desirable skillset for researchers to possess. Collaboration suggests working with other people in some kind of creative capacity, but there are many different modes of work. Understanding how people work alongside one another is crucial; even more important is thinking about how one can work better with people.
NonZeroSum is a new training resource, developed as part of the Vitae Innovate 2010 programme, and seeks to engage researchers with a series of short collaborative challenges. During the session participants will:
- explore the nature of collaboration and identify their strengths as collaborators
- practice collaborative skills through innovative group activities
- determine opportunities for developing collaborative skills
- contribute to the development of a new training resource
Places are strictly limited to a maximum of 12 participants. The session is highly participatory in nature and involves groupwork. As NonZeroSum is a new training resource, participants and observers will be asked to give feedback on the session to help the future development of the session.
