The/La Collaborative held its first training workshop for the Graduate Student Cohort 2019-2020 in collaboration with Mitacs from August 27th-29th, 2019. The three-day skills-building workshop introduced students to The/La Collaborative to draw attention on the significance of collaborative competence. Facilitated by Jim Brosseau and sponsored by Mitacs, the workshop included various exercises regarding self-awareness, personality types, effective communication, team-work, and project management, all of which will be useful for students working within The/La Collaborative and beyond.
