UW Collaborates is a workshop dedicated to teaching theories and practice of collaboration in academia and the workplace. The day will be an excellent networking opportunity and experience to put on your resume.
Collaboration is a critical skill necessary to succeed in today's world — regardless of who you are, where you live, or the work that you do, you will find yourself needing to collaborate with others on a daily basis. So if we need to collaborate with others all the time, then why are some people so bad at it?

Let us teach you how to effectively communicate with your team, turn destructive conflict into constructive conflict, and leverage your group's diversity to develop outcomes better than you have ever expected! Our workshop is created with input by the Centre for Teaching Excellence, the Student Success Office, and the Department of Knowledge Integration, and we encourage all participants to include it on their resumés to impress future employers!
All of the skills we are teaching in our workshop are rooted in academic and professional research, and will help you become a better collaborator than you ever imagined. So why not give it a try?
