STOP! Collaborate and Listen: Back with Tools for Fraternization

Collaboration in the workplace is inevitable. Many of us have had to collaborate with others on articles, books, and other various projects, whether it is within our own office or with a colleague halfway across the country. As academics, we’re often tasked with co-authoring articles, co-designing posters, co-creating presentations, or coordinating committee tasks. Luckily, with the rapid technological advancements, an influx of online collaborative tools have been developed to facilitate working together in an open and interactive space. Free and easy-to-use tools such as Google Suite, Mendeley, Slack, Trello, and Zoho Doc,  offer numerous features that cut down task time by offering file-sharing, live edits, instant saves, chat functionalities, and more--all the while removing the hassle of having to coordinate conference calls or exchange voluminous e-mail threads and attachments of revised drafts which can be cumbersome and unorganized. These tools also boast full compatibility across multiple operating systems, platforms, and mobile devices so that you can take your work on the go and have access to it from virtually anywhere.

Join us as we introduce each collaboration tool to you at this session and learn about special features such as voice-to-text, simultaneous editing, archived feedbacks and comments, webcam/phone integration, exporting and transferring options, all of which are designed to maximize and simplify collaborative efforts.
