Collaborative Communication

Collaborative Communication Learning Community AY 2022-23 (Fall and Spring) | In our hectic schedules, we often do not take the time to slow down to reflect on and think together about our work. The ECTL has been hosting an informal collaborative communication (CC) group for the past four years that does just that. Although slowing down for an hour and a half may seem counterproductive, it can actually provide us with deeper insights and new ways of viewing challenges and opportunities that may be more sustainable in the long run than when we hurriedly rush to make decisions. 

In this learning community, faculty, staff, administrators and Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) are invited to join us in thinking together. We learn about and use CC in real-time as we dialogue about topics that naturally arise from the group. This is not problem-solving, group therapy, nor is there a specific agenda, other than reflecting and thinking together through CC dialogue. 

There are two group options, one online and another in person. Both are equally effective, yet the in-person group tends to provide a somewhat richer experience. 

Registration deadline: Friday, September 2. Participants will be notified of group assignment by Tuesday, September 6.
