Session Proposal: Collaboration Across Professions

As distributed technology projects call for our collaboration with a more and more diverse group of people, what are some simple, day-to-day methods for working with folks from very different professions?

This is partially a project management question, I think, so I’d be interested in learning from others’ experiences in large, diverse working groups. When starting a project, what are some methods for information gathering and getting to know new departments? Determining best project roles and communication methods?

What do archivists and curators wish librarians knew? What do librarians need to learn about working with IT departments? What do educational technologists wish IT professionals knew about them? What about cultural differences when working with partners from the corporate sector? How do we incorporate diverse practices into a larger functional whole?
