MetadataShow full item record
This presentation will review the early and recent literature relevant to multidisciplinary collaborative research teams, presenting the threats and barriers as well as the strengths and opportunities inherent in their structure. The analysis of these reports will include this authorâ views on the assumptions of superiority of such research groups, the communications and trust issues, the usual rules of engagement, and the types of outcomes produced. This will lead the listener to the core premise of this presentation, that the utilization of reflexive practices such as sharing written personal perspectives on the research topic, shared reflection about process and findings, and negotiating interpretation within such multidisciplinary research groups, holds the highest potential of establishing the right circumstances for successful outcomes and experiences.
