The offices of the Vice President for Research, Provost, and Faculty Affairs (School of Medicine) are pleased to offer this free career development seminar series for WSU faculty, chairs & directors, postdoctoral trainees & graduate students, and administratorsSeminars are free, but registration is required.

This seminar, Online Resources for Interdisciplinary Research and Team Science, will take place Wednesday, March 19, 2014, from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in OVPR Conference Room A on the 6th floor of 5057 Woodward (corner of Woodward and Putnam).

Growing interest in interdisciplinary research and team science in the academy as well as public and private spheres is matched by an expanding literature. The Division of Research is supporting efforts at Wayne State University by developing resources on the Interdisciplinary Research link on the Division’s website. Individuals may use them for self-tutorials. Program and project directors and advisors may draw on them for coaching, and in grant applications. They may form the basis of workshops, training modules, and short courses.  

Topics include:

• Authoritative definitions of interdisciplinary research and team science

• Answers to FAQs about Interdisciplinarity, including introductions and overviews, strategies for institutional change, and resources in science and technology, social sciences, and humanities

 • Answers to FAQs about Interdisciplinary Education, including introductions and overviews, pedagogy, textbooks, models and strategies, and learning assessment.

• Answers to FAQs about Team Science, including introductions and overviews, collaboration, evaluation, training, and further resources.

• Preview of new training modules on tenure and promotion, collaboration, training, evaluation, and barriers and strategies for change.

Seminar participants will also have the opportunity to share their experiences and suggestions for additional resources or materials.
