Would you like to learn how to manage conflict as a member or leader of a team-based research project?

In collaborative research, conflict is inevitable. As individuals with diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and personalities undergo the stages of team formation, differences in goals, working styles, and expectations emerge. Failing to address these differences can derail a promising research idea and fracture collaborative relationships. Learn the strategies to anticipate and overcome conflict in your research from a Team Science methodology.

In this two-part, live, online workshop, you’ll hear about common areas of conflict in research teams, learn about frameworks for understanding, discussing, and managing conflict, and practice these skills through role playing.

Faculty: Thomas Cox, Ryan Evans and Colin Gerrity are members of the Tufts University Technology Services. Cox serves as the Director of Design Practice, and Evans and Gerrity serve as Service Designers.
