Getting to Know Yourself as a Collaborator
Tuesday, Dec. 7, 2021
4 p.m. Central Time
Hosted by Lifeology, a health and science communication platform, the webinar will help participants understand how to maximize the strengths and accommodate the weaknesses of collaborators in a team in order to end up with a result that’s better and more creative than any individual could have come up with on their own.

Mitchell and her co-presenters Paige Kinsley, graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Jaya Borgatta with the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, will discuss how great collaborations don’t happen by accident—they take self-reflection, planning, and care. 

They also will talk about their collaboration with Lifeology artists to create several public-friendly flash-card courses that combine text and art to communicate with non-science audiences about both the benefits of nanotechnology and the responsibility to understand its potential environmental impacts.
