The Interdisciplinary Translation and Integration Sciences Initiative

interdisciplinary translation and integration sciences initiative

Long-entrenched disciplinary and institutional power structures limit the ability of research teams to successfully produce integrative outcomes. External forces and pressures constrain which ideas, methods, and objectives are open for discussion and debate at any point in the team research process. Interdisciplinary facilitation and translation methodologies, explicitly built in to all areas of a project, can mediate the influences of existing power structures and allow research teams to collaborate more successfully.

The Interdisciplinary Translation and Integration Sciences Initiative at ASU seeks to fulfill this role in two primary ways:

  1. Conduct innovative research on the science of integration
  2. Provide translation and facilitation services for interdisciplinary research teams across all areas of the university.

Join us for a workshop!

During this full-day workshop, participants will get an introduction to interdisciplinary team science, as well as learn a newly proposed method for conducting effective team science. Participants will learn basic principles of interdisciplinary science, practice communicating across disciplinary boundaries, and collaboratively construct conceptual diagrams to facilitate interdisciplinary research. The workshop is appropriate for faculty and graduate students who want to strengthen their skills for participating in future interdisciplinary research opportunities. Lunch will be included in your registration.

When: Friday,
November 15, 2019, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
