Envisioning the final project together is an important step in the process. Everyone’s vision will probably look different—and that’s okay because differences are good! During the creation process, revisiting the goals originally set forth by the team members can help the team choose the right pieces to include or settle disagreements.
Another theme of the course is “Yes, And…” statements. Learn about using these statements to ensure that you listen to others and keep the energy positive—all while still contributing your ideas!
Finally, it’s important to seek outside feedback. And don’t forget to credit everyone who contributed! You’ll have to view the course to learn all the lessons learned and advice for writing about science collaboratively. Check it out now…you have to see how the quilt turns out!
And if you want to learn even more about writing science collaboratively, you’re in luck! On December 7th at 5pm ET, we have a Lifeology live webinar! The webinar, “Getting to Know Yourself as a Collaborator,” is also presented by Jaya, Paige, and Stephanie.
