Division 3 Graduate Student Representative Message

Dan Brooks


Editors’ Note: As the APA graduate student representative, Dan is charged with helping “graduate students get the most out of what APA has to offer them” (Rebecca Singer, September 2006 Division 3 Graduate Student Representative Message). His e-mail address is below.


I would like to write a future column on collaboration, but what I need are some stories and experiences from other students.


In a sense, I hope that this can be a collaboration on collaboration – a meta-collaboration. Beyond your own topic of study, what other research have you done in graduate school? Do you work with other researchers besides your "Advisor?" Do you collaborate with other students? Is collaboration with others outside of your own laboratory encouraged or discouraged in your department?


I've found collaboration to be among my most rewarding experiences in graduate school. I've formed some of my strongest friendships, kept myself interested and engaged in my work, and learned that despite each person having their own unique challenges, there is a strong synergy between behavioral work with animals and humans. In my next column, I'll try to expand on my own story and to relate the stories of others.


I'd like to hear your stories on collaboration in graduate school, good or bad. If you would, please submit them to daniel-brooks@uiowa.edu. I hope that, together, we can compose an engaging story for how best to collaborate, what pitfalls to avoid, and how to get the most out of your graduate school experience
