Title: Lessons Learned from Teams Using Transdisciplinary Approaches

Date: March 13, 2024 2-3:30pm ET



  • Greta Landis, University of Wisconsin-Madison
  • Hailey Wilmer, USDA-ARS

Description: What do effective transdisciplinary approaches look like in practice? What kinds of systems, tools, and aspects of team culture contribute to successful transdisciplinary efforts? In this webinar, Hailey Wilmer (ARS), Greta Landis (University of Wisconsin-Madison), and their collaborators will dig deeper into how teams have implemented transdisciplinary approaches. Specifically, Hailey and co-authors will summarize methodological lessons from three recent collaborative rangeland projects addressing adaptive management, biodiversity-livelihood intersections, and climate resilience. Greta Landis (University of Wisconsin-Madison) and colleagues will share strategies for transdisciplinary project management, leadership, and evaluation using lessons-learned from current projects in NIFA’s Sustainable Agriculture Systems (SAS) program.
