Enacting Immersive Collaboration
Sep 21 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Dr. Jessica Jameson, Dr. Mariza Marrero
Description: This workshop will cover communication that supports and creates immersive collaboration. We will discuss behaviors and expectations that build and sustain a collaborative environment. These include listening, engaging, acknowledging expertise, building rapport, and nurturing relationships. Next we examine common communication scenarios at LAS and work to develop constructive communication strategies and techniques for working through them. Finally, we will identify and practice tips for dealing with especially difficult conversations, such as cross-cultural interactions, negotiating expectations, holding each other accountable, and engaging in productive conflict management.
