25 Sep Team Science Seminar Series Kicks Off for 2023-2024
The 2023–2024 Team Science Seminar Series is kicking off with the session Introduction to the Team Science Seminar Series 2023-2024: Teamwork and Collaboration. The 10 events in this free series will be offered the first Thursday of each month, 12:00–1:00pm Pacific, beginning October 5th.
Launched during the 2022-2023 academic year, the annual Team Science Seminar Series was developed to assist early career researchers in addressing challenges to collaboration and collective team functioning, improving their ability to lead interdisciplinary teams, communicate and build trust with their collaborators, and identify the best ways to solve problems collaboratively.
I am self-aware of some issues I want to work on, but have had a hard time improving on this. I think this session helped me think about an action plan where I can set a goal for myself.
