Diverse Perspectives: Exploring Scenarios for the Scholarly Commons

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Scholarly Commons is something many of us hope for, but understanding what it might look like offers a unique challenge. This session will function as a workshop to create and share brainstormed scenarios (or sketches) that will help us better understand what scholarly commons are all about. We will use these scenarios as entry points into deeper discussions that explore the future, open our minds, and enable us to see things we might not have noticed before. What are the assumptions? What are the pieces? What would good look like? What are the differences from today? What is actually needed? By engaging with those from different backgrounds and perspectives we aim to attain a better understanding of specific needs of diverse groups. Insights and understandings will also help inform the ongoing work of the Scholarly Commons Working Group 4, which is peering through the lenses of both technology and scholarly commoning in an effort to find, gather, or create the technology needed to support a future for research communication that meets our collective and diverse needs.
