Hey Stranger!

Participate in a Collaborating with Strangers® Workshop on Communities, Culture and Health, and walk away with more resources, solutions and creative ideas than you could have ever imagined.

Collaborating with Strangers workshops are a team effort by the Library, the UWB Office of Research and the UWB Office of Community Based Learning and Research, to connect  faculty and community partners to resources, networks and creative opportunities.
The CoLAB Planning Series® is a large group facilitative process that supports one-on-one “speed meetings” where participants quickly reveal their passions, skills and resources that may otherwise take months of conversations to uncover. The goal of Collaborating with Strangers is to create a safe and engaging environment in which participants from various fields can meet each other, exchange ideas and, together, build new foundations to start or improve on campus-wide or community projects.
Post-workshop activities will enable participants to follow-up with “strangers” they couldn’t meet during the live workshop session through the CoLAB website. The goal of providing online access to participant information is to expand the impact of the workshop for learning about on-campus networks, promoting creative resource-sharing and inspiring collaborative project ideas. Participant profiles (created during the workshop) and photographs (taken at registration) will be posted and made accessible using UW NetID or gmail logins. Participants also can access the information of those from other Collaborating with Strangers workshops.
The CoLab Planning Series® was created by Bess de Farber, University of Florida Libraries,
