Summary
  • Interaction with strangers cultivates creativity and provides opportunities for joining forces to achieve great ends. However most people tend to avoid talking or working with people they do not know, whether in the library, a classroom, or in academic and nonprofit settings. And to do so is to short-circuit much of the creative potential that is so necessary for innovation, and that organizational stakeholders crave. Enter CoLAB. Developed and presented by de Farber at workshops across the country, and used by the authors to successfully spur collaboration at the University of Florida (including faculty-librarian, librarian-librarian, librarian-student, faculty-faculty, student-student, and student-librarian-community member), it showcases the power of face-to-face conversations. Leading readers through a unique framework that breaks down barriers to collaboration while also kindling long-lasting enthusiasm, this manual includes: testimonials from workshop participants that demonstrate the benefits of a Collaborating with Strangers workshop; step by step guidance on every aspect of organizing and presenting a CoLAB workshop; helpful photographs and diagrams that show prep and workshops in action; ready to use surveys for assessment before and after the workshop; grant proposal development techniques for bringing two or more organizations together on a project; pointers on how to adapt the workshop for ice-breakers, conference programs, or classrooms; and samples of workshop promotion pieces that can be adapted as needed"--
  • Working together to plan and actualize projects stimulates creativity and maximizes the collective impact of combined assets. This guide is designed to help you initiate collaborative relationships that would otherwise likely never materialize. Workshop strategies allow participants to share hidden assets, move project and people forward, and share personal and professional interests
