Rackham North: Developing Collaborative Practices and Skills
October 17, 2019, 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm EDT
- Workshop: 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., East Room, Pierpont Commons
- Research Remix: 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Gallery, Duderstadt Center (Exhibit: Faculty Painting)
The shape of research, creative scholarship, and teaching is in flux. In order to thrive, students and practitioners need collaborative know-how. ArtsEngine and Rackham North invite you to a first-hand experience that engages deeply with the future of the research university and what it means for interdisciplinary collaboration in research and creation. In this workshop, students will develop collaborative know-how to forge new interdisciplinary collaborations or fine-tune existing ones. With an emphasis on practice, productive techniques, and reflection, the workshop activities and tools will help collaborators to co-create effectively, communicate clearly, navigate conflict and group dynamics, think creatively about the mechanics of the collaborative process, and have fun! Following the workshop, ArtsEngine invites you to attend Research Remix for an opportunity to meet and mingle with grad students from the North Campus schools and colleges in the Duderstadt Center Gallery and to hear short presentations from students who have engaged in interdisciplinary collaborative projects and research.
This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Space is limited. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
