Using an exciting theory borrowed from gaming research this innovative session NonZeroSum: Collaboration For Researchers will be piloted with Research Staff for the first time at The University of Manchester.
Collaboration skills are an increasingly desirable skillset for researchers to possess. Collaboration suggests working with other people in some kind of creative capacity, but there are many different modes of work. Understanding how people work alongside one another is crucial; even more important is thinking about how one can work better with people.
During the session participants will:
– explore the nature of collaboration and identify their strengths as collaborators
– practice collaborative skills through innovative group activities
– determine opportunities for developing collaborative skills
– contribute to the development of a new training resource
Places are strictly limited to a maximum of 12 participants. The session is highly participatory in nature and involves groupwork. As NonZeroSum is a new training resource, participants and observers will be asked to give feedback on the session to help the future development of the session (please note time has been factored into the session to do this).
