Connect with our Centre for Unusual Collaborations – Perspective taking

At the Centre for Unusual Collaborations (CUCo) we support groups of young academics to collaborate in meaningful and effective ways. Two years into our existence we have learned a bunch, which is why we have re-envisioned our Spark grant as an individual and collective interdisciplinary learning space designed to better equip CUCo-supported research teams to take up the challenge of unusual collaboration.

Key lessons in perspective taking

Finding research team members with whom to develop unusual collaborations is not easy, and experience teaches us that it takes time and effort to build creative, fruitful and joyous interdisciplinary collaborations. Also, the complexity of interdisciplinary research requires the awareness and use of a specific set of competences for which not all academics are optimally prepared. In this Lunch, Learn & Connect we will share some of our key lessons and offer the opportunity to practice the difficult exercise that is called ‘perspective taking’.
