Professional Development Workshop - 'Fostering Institutional Collaboration: Mastering the Skills You Need to Successfully Collaborate' - November 15
Please join us for the professional development workshop "Fostering Institutional Collaboration: Mastering the Skills You Need to Successfully Collaborate" on Thursday, November 15, from 9:00 a.m. to noon in Chase Hall 109.
Within institutions of higher education, invisible (and sometimes visible) boundaries are organically created between units and people based on rank, class, seniority, authority, power, expertise, and function. To protect our job duties and the responsibilities of our units from outside influences and demands, we unintentionally create these buffers or boundaries; however, to effectively meet institutional goals and compete in the volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous higher education market, it is imperative that all stakeholders work together across these boundaries to address institutional, divisional, and departmental challenges that cannot be solved in organizational silos. This workshop is for staff, faculty, and administrators who want to improve how they collaborate with other individuals or units. During this workshop, participants will learn how to
- create a safe environment for collaboration;
- develop the skills to effectively collaborate;
- identify how to manage collaborative projects with other units, colleagues, or institutional stakeholders; and
- identify campus technology tools that can make collaboration easy, effective, and productive.
Todd Benzin, educational technology specialist, will offer one-on-one training sessions on collaboration using campus technology upon request.
Light snacks will be provided. Please register through the Workshop Registration System.
