Getting along with others is foundational to success in personal and professional life. In an increasingly diverse and complex world, we need to overcome distance and tight schedules to achieve shared goals. But how do we learn to work together if our learning experiences focus on individual performance? In this webinar we’ll use Janet Salmons‘ Taxonomy of Collaboration as a framework for understanding dynamics of the collaborative process. We’ll discuss ways to embed collaborative skills-building into assignments, courses, and/or curricula that engage students of all ages.
We need to be able to get things done with other people, whether close at hand or across boundaries of distance and culture. Learning to Collaborate, Collaborating to Learn is a practical guide for educators at all levels, in any discipline, who want to design courses or workshops, projects or assignments, to intentionally develop skills essential to collaboration – while teaching content.

You spent a lot of time researching and writing a thesis, dissertation, or capstone project. How can you convert your academic work into a career asset? Registration is open for the course starting February 13, 2017!
Everyone knows we should publish something based on the dissertation- but where to start? While some people are on a scholarly track and want to publish in peer-reviewed journals, others would benefit from publishing practical guides or how-to manuals. These events will offer ideas and strategies for a wide range of publication options that align with career goals.
What are the best options for you, and how can you turn your aspirations into reality? If you want to walk the Path to Publishing, but need a plan, this 6-week course is designed for you! We’ll be with you every step of the way, with two live webinars, discussions, and constructive suggestions about how to improve your writing and maximise your chances of publication. You will work through weekly lessons and exercises, and generate a publication strategy. Learn more and register here!
