Building Your Academic Networks and Partnerships
Thursday, February 17, 10:00 to 11:00
Thriving faculty members typically draw on robust intellectual communities and strong professional networks. In this workshop, faculty members at different points in the career arc will share their experiences regarding key aspects of building networks and partnerships, both within and beyond Duke. How does one connect with new scholars and groups, or identify potential collaborators? When should one accept invitations to join projects? What are the advantages and challenges associated with developing research relationships with community organizations and engagement interests? How can one best deploy the varied but disparate Duke resources to support faculty? Engage with your colleagues about these and similar questions related to the role of intellectual community and collaboration in faculty success.
