Collaboration is becoming the norm for both disciplinary and interdisciplinary research. This workshop will highlight the practical, social, and psychological aspects of developing and maintaining productive research collaborations. Topics covered include different kinds of collaboration, how to begin a research collaboration, the benefits and challenges of collaborating, and how to manage your collaborations effectively.

Dr. Tom Brinthaupt is Director of Faculty Development at the LT&ITC. He collaborates extensively on a wide variety of research and writing projects, with faculty from both MTSU and other institutions.

The Learning, Teaching, and Innovative Technologies Center is located in the James E. Walker Library, Room 348. Please visit the LT&ITC website for more information about services available at the Center.

If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.

If you have an idea for a potential future workshop, please feel free to send your suggestions to Dr. Lando Carter.
