Award notification for proposal: Collaborating with Strangers is a team effort by the UF Libraries (three librarians, PR officer, and grants manager/project facilitator) and partner representatives from arts, science, engineering, and various undergraduate programs to promote, facilitate and evaluate 6 “speed meeting” sessions (2 hours each from 4 to 6 p.m.) based on a facilitative process known as CoLAB Planning®. An average of 30 participants for each session will include faculty, graduate and undergraduate students; pre-registration is not required. External evaluation will determine effectiveness for future replication and expansion. The project goal is to use successful facilitation processes and online follow-up for eliminating barriers to networking and learning about extant campus resources. By doing so, the team and its partners will create the fertile ground necessary to generate creative ideas for sharing resources/information while combining forces across disciplines.
