How the hell do you get people to talk to each other?
This is a workshop style presentation where we will introduce a number of collaboration techniques, then break into groups who will use the different techniques to examine the idea of collaboration. Finally, the groups will report back to the larger group about what they learned about collaboration techniques from each other and from the actual experience of employing the technique.
