Last year’s TELI-G proved to be quite successful, with over 50 graduate students applying to participate in the workshop. Please feel free to view the itinerary and comments from last year’s participants by viewing the website tabs: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3. During the three-day workshop, lectures from experts in the environmental field were combined with group learning opportunities. The main goal was to equip participants with the tools and resources needed to be successful in interdisciplinary collaborations – in research and in the classroom.
Experts from the Tufts library spoke about resources that are available, and how they can be found, accessed, and incorporated into participants’ work and teaching. The workshop exposed participants to communication techniques that assisted them in successfully incorporating what they learned into their teaching.
The overall aims of TELI G 2014 were to:
- Provide a framework for graduate students to study interdisciplinary connections collaboratively
- Explore the concept of water in a coupled human-natural system
- Provide water course content
- Introduce water research and course development ideas
