To be an effective collaborator, one must communicate and ensure collaboration is feasible. I have linked examples of collaboration tools Google Calendar and Poll Everywhere. Google Calendar allows users to schedule and view appointments to keep them on task, and Poll Everywhere serves as a survey tool to help schedule meetings and other events. I am constantly meeting stakeholders, colleagues, and students. To be efficient and manage their time and mine, I use these tools daily.


Educators dedicate time to collaborate with colleagues and students to improve practice, discover and share resources and ideas, and solve problems.

The Department of Career Services impacts so many other institutional areas that it is imperative to use collaboration tools. These tools are also essential to the day-to-day function of the department.
