When Disciplines Collide: Pulling Back the Curtain on an Interdisciplinary Team

Join us to learn more about the nitty gritty of interdisciplinary collaborations. This series of discussions is based on the experiences of teams of researchers working on an NSF-Advancing Informal STEM Learning Project: Convergent Learning from Divergent Perspectives. In the second panel discussion, researchers who have participated in an interdisciplinary team will discuss how they have built a high-functioning team, the process of finding an advisory team from outside the university and negotiating potentially contentious topics of publications and communication. Come and hear about some of the foundations to building and sustaining a successful interdisciplinary team. Project website:
