Continuing the discussion from Ronin-IGDORE unconference?:
All OS&A forum users are invited to the Scholarship Values Summit!
This FREE virtual event will take place on Airmeet (online platform) during three Sessions from 14 to 16 September, 2021 (details below). You can register for each Session separately, but you are welcome to attend them all!
Description: This unconference provides a space for participants to identify harmful scholarship-related systems that no longer work, and to define shared values in scholarship as a basis for creating new healthier systems that are more supportive of scholarship goals.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Anyone who considers themselves a scholar or an ally to scholars.
WHAT TO EXPECT?: Unconferences are participant-centered. Therefore, we’ll have a mix of short seed talks to help us kick off, a schedule board that participants will use to list a topic they want to discuss, break out groups around proposed topics, collaborative writing and creating, reflection breaks, and informal time to chat and meet each other. See here for more information.
