Most research projects require a team of collaborators to work together in order to reach a common goal and advance science. However, research training and the academic tenure and promotion system focus primarily on individual productivity. In this introductory workshop, we define research teams, the stages of team formation, characteristics of successful teams, and discuss when teamwork may or may not be beneficial in research. We will work through case studies illustrating common challenges that arise in teams and identify strategies for problem solving and prevention. We will introduce tools that measure a person’s attitude toward teamwork as well as tools that measure team functioning. Join us in this first workshop of the series to gain a better understanding of the basics of the science of team science.
