Event description


Working with people who are outside of your own area of expertise or interest allows diverse groups to combine their expertise, creating a team that produces results greater than the sum of its parts.

Please join us for a webinar presented by Paula Gardner, an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication Studies and Multimedia, the Asper Chair in Communications, and director of the Pulse Lab at McMaster University, via WebEx. Paula takes an interdisciplinary approach to her own research, which has allowed her to expedite experiments and develop solutions that could only have been accomplished with a diverse team.

During this webinar, Paula will share her own approaches to interdisciplinary research, strategies for success, as well as some of the challenges of working with people outside of your discipline -- and how to overcome them.
