Effective Team Dynamics (ETD) workshop1

2023-11-20
B700, Lab3

This in-person interactive workshop is for graduate students, post-docs, and other researchers. This ICOGS* workshop is offered by the Georgia Tech Effective Team Dynamics Initiative and will be facilitated by Prof Mary Lynn Realff (MSE). * (ICOGS) Interdisciplinary Collaboration for Graduate Students

Working as part of a team, or group, comes with both benefits and challenges. The benefits include interacting with people who bring different viewpoints, expertise and experiences to the table. However, the challenges include communicating effectively with people who have different backgrounds and dealing constructively with conflict due to different viewpoints.

The workshop will explore how diversity in a team can strengthen it, different approaches to dealing with conflict, how to have a “difficult conversation” with both peers and your supervisor, and strategies for avoiding communications problems. Take home tools to improve your team skills will be provided.

Special Talk - "How the notion of harassment emerged in modern societies" by Dr. CLAUDINE HAROCHE

2023-09-29
L4E48

According to the philosophers of the Enlightenment, it is a moral duty to recognize others as equals worth of respect and recognition. Jean-Jacques Rousseau in the Discourse on the origins of inequality and Adam Smith in the Treatise of moral feelings have analyzed the social inequalities and forms of domination which have persisted over the centuries and are still expressed by various kinds of unrespectful and violent behaviors. Sexual harassment whose victims are mostly women is the most conspicuous, but moral bullying, especially in the work place has also emerged as an explicit issue in modern societies, which needs to be seriously dealt with. The respect owed to anyone is not only a matter of moral duty. It has become a right inscribed in laws protecting the potential victims of all kind of harassment. Transforming a moral precept into a legal right is certainly a social progress. It raises however issues which will be discussed in the talk.

Career Talk: "How to write a lot and well" by Shinichi Nakagawa

2023-09-27
C700, Lab 3

My research group has consistently published ~20 papers per year for 15 years, and most of these papers were published in the top 25% of journals (CiteScores) with an average citation of > 100. How did we manage to do this? There are several reasons. In this interactive talk session, I will share one core secret: how to write a lot and well. If you can do it, you are invincible in academia or elsewhere. But how do you do this? You should consider writing a review to transform you into an amazing writer.
