1/2 Day Workshop: Self-Identifying the Knowledge, Skills, and Dispositional Attributes that Define the Intereach Community
Lead Facilitator: Christine Ogilvie Hendren, Duke University
Co-Facilitators: Gabriele Bammer, Australian National University; Holly Falk-Krzesinski, Elsevier
Description: This workshop addresses a new but growing SciTS-generated community of practice and research: Intereach (Interdisciplinary Integration Research Careers Hub). The Intereach community has evolved around a broadly shared need for new types of roles to be defined, recognized, institutionally supported and trained in order to optimize the success of interdisciplinary scientific endeavors. We will cover the new forms of expertise needed to address complex problems and effectively engage diverse knowledge bases and work at the interfaces between disciplines to help facilitate, optimize, and translate, research outcomes.
