Cafe Scientifique Orlando is a gathering of scientifically-inclined people in Central Florida, who meet at a cafe, coffee house, pub, or nonacademic location to discuss events and ideas in the world of science. We enjoy beer and wine, and we use plain language to talk about extraordinary ideas.
Teamwork has become a way of life in many industries, agencies, and organizations. But, what do we know about teamwork, team leaders, and team effectiveness after decades of research? Professor Salas will highlight what we know about the science and practice of teamwork and team leadership. The talk will provide HR executives, managers and practitioners with valuable practical insights about what contributes to team effectiveness in organizations.
Eduardo Salas is University Trustee Chair and Pegasus Professor of Psychology at the University of Central Florida (UCF). He also holds an appointment as Program Director for Human Systems Integration Research Department at UCF’s Institute for Simulation & Training. Previously, he was a Senior Research Psychologist and Head of the Training Technology Development Branch of NAVAIR-Orlando for 15 years.
Our next scheduled topic is…
We are being invaded! Learn about the natural history of ants, how they assemble communities, and ant invasions in natural and human-altered landscapes. Better understand the ecology of one of the most abundant groups of organisms on Earth, insects. Our discussion leader will be Dr. Joshua King, an assistant professor and insect ecology researcher in the Biology department at the University of Central Florida.
