University of Florida: 2010 Collaboration Basics in Grant Seeking
I was invited to present this lecture to Ph.D. students in a grant writing course taught by Dr. Jared Daniels, in the Entomology Dept. For most students, this class was their first foray into grant seeking. Most didn't know each other--it was a multi-disciplinary group including science, health, math, and the arts/humanities majors.
The goal of the lecture was to help students understand components of outstanding collaborations, why collaborations fail, and how to learn about others' assets which is the basic tool for developing collaborative relationships.
