Information, Innovation, and People: Knowledge Mobilization as Open in Action
This event last occurred Oct. 25, 2016
For Open Access Week 2016, join us for a panel discussion about knowledge mobilization, open access, and how they can complement each other and advance the mission of the New American University.
Funders want their research dollars to have results and are increasingly requiring researchers to demonstrate the value and impact of their work. In this environment, merely publishing articles is not sufficient. Knowledge mobilization is a strategy where the goal is not only to distribute knowledge, but to share it in such a way that it is easily accessible, useful and used. Can Open Access be a part of a knowledge mobilization strategy? Do Knowledge Mobilization and Open Access change the way we prepare future scholars?
The panelists for this presentation are:
- Alfredo Artiles, Dean, Graduate Education
- Jennifer Cason, Director of Graduate Support Initiatives
- James J. O’Donnell, University Librarian, ASU Libraries
- Eric Wertheimer, Associate Dean, Graduate Education and Faculty Director, Digital Humanities Initiative
