The Art and Science of Long Distance Collaboration

Mark Horney

Jamie Basham

This session focuses on how to develop and maintain long distance collaborations to foster research, leadership, and professional opportunities. The presenters address both books and tools that are available to assist with the collaborative process as well as practical issues that arise in collaboration, in three video segments. A link to a handout describing the tools and strategies discussed in the videos is provided below.
