For decades, afternoon tea with colleagues has been a tradition at research institutes throughout the world. Many of us may know it as a “salon”.
We invite you to join the conversation at this year’s first XDTea @ 3:00 on the general topic “collaboration in the digital age”. Tea and cookies will be served. This is the first XD@GW event of the year, so don’t miss it! No RSVP required.
XD @ GW Faculty Cooperative provides opportunities for faculty to exchange ideas and methods across fields and forge creative, innovative teams to work together on complex challenges. Fellows are also working to shift the culture at GW to improve conditions and solve institutional barriers that hold us back. If your work or teaching is interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, or transdisciplinary, then you are already part of the GW Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration Initiative. Join your peers at these monthly teas and email XDinitiative@gwu.edu to become a Fellow.
