Teaming is a process, not an outcome. Join us for this free introductory session on the unique challenges faced by scientific teams working across disciplines to solve complex, global problems, and learn how team science equips teams for success.
Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
This virtual experiential workshop will introduce the principles of team science from the latest research and practice, demonstrate strategies for building team capacity in new and existing teams, and hone your skills for teaming and coaching diverse teams.
The great news is that team skills can be taught and fostered among scientists at all stages of their careers. Join us for these online trainings to learn tools for your diverse teams.
This class will be offered virtually through MOSAIC
