We understand that there is increasing pressure on University Research Departments to initiate collaborations between diverse groups of academics, industry and community representatives to develop multidisciplinary and innovative research ideas, networks and projects.
This course is designed to help research managers and administrators to develop the facilitation plans and skills to effectively manage the process of initiating such collaborations through short meetings. These plans will enable participants to facilitate productive interactions that deliver creative ideas and the start of networks which will ultimately result in innovative and successful research proposals.
We will share with you our experience of facilitating collaborative workshops as well as some of the practical tools and techniques that we use in the workshops that we are asked to plan and facilitate. We understand the importance of being as effective as possible within the short timescales available.
The course includes:
- Pre workshop questionnaire
- 1-day workshop
- Post -workshop guide – a summary of tools and techniques and a draft workshop planning template
By the end of the course you will have:
- Developed an awareness of how to influence and inspire people to engage and collaborate, using practical tools and methods.
- Experienced some well tested tools and strategies for engaging diverse type of groups and people.
- Explored the planning process and strategies for managing an effective short workshop
The agenda will be tailored in response to the needs expressed in the pre-course questionnaires. We will also ask you to bring to the workshop an idea for a collaborative event that you might want to facilitate.
This course is open to anyone who is responsible for bringing diverse groups of people together to collaborate.
