Increasing Collaboration with Faculty and Colleagues

n.jpg
Description
 
 
Universities have been traditionally based on an apprenticeship model whereby students learn through collaboration with faculty members. Collaboration has not only become easier due to new developments in information technologies, but also an increasingly competitive job market has made networking and collaboration skills essentials for graduate students. In some disciplines, students work under particular faculty members as a matter of the program's policy and practice, whereas in others students must find their own mentors for their research work. Collaboration involves a variety of skills including effective communication, finding and developing common areas of interest, and having a shared understanding of the collaborative process. Within your department, you can organize group meetings, set up discussion forums, or share your blogging sites with fellow thesis/dissertation writers, grant writers, conference presenters, etc. But note that collaboration can also happen beyond disciplinary borders.
