Keynote: The Science of Team Science and Global Impact in Higher Education
The science of team science (the study of science teams and their functioning) and the actual collaboration of teams within a scientific setting have, since the early 21st century, contributed to new outlooks, processes, and expectations for industry, human wellbeing, and scholarly pursuits.
Through the lenses of psychology, management, social psychology, anthropology, and sociology, the study of teams in the last quarter of a century can inform best practices for the work that both academics and laborers do. How does knowledge about teaming impact the modern university that seeks to grow students to be more suited for the changing landscape of the global stage and its most complex of problems?
Higher education is faced with a new paradigm that not only prepares students to be experts in a chosen discipline but also requires them to be able to work in a new information and collaborative age, where skills and competencies that foster cross-disciplinary engagement and problem solving will be the foundation for global impact.
For these events, Gaetano R. Lotrecchiano, Ed.D., Ph.D. will join MSU as a visiting fellow of team scholarship. Light refreshments will be served. RCR credit is available for all events in this series. For more information, visit the Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration Series website.
The MSU Graduate School, in collaboration with the Office of Research & Innovation and the Office of University Outreach & Engagement, is hosting the Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration Series, being held from Saturday, April 1 through Wednesday, April 5.
