Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the iSchool at UBC. Drawing on her research on electronic records management, in particular the AC+erm (Accelerating positive change in electronic records management https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/acerm) project, Dr. Julie McLeod will argue that ERM is a ‘wicked problem.’ She will discuss how the Cynefin framework, a framework that helps decision makers to make sense of a range of business problems and situations in dynamic contexts, can be used to take appropriate action and choose appropriate solutions. She will refer to different digital records contexts, including research data management, and will consider some of the ways forward and requirements to address the challenges we face.

Bruce_KingmaWhat do iSchool programs in entrepreneurship and innovation look like?  From 2007-2012, there was a transformative shift in education at Syracuse University and in the iSchool at SU.  Entrepreneurship and innovation became a signature of the campus and the iSchool.  During this period 165 programs in entrepreneurship and innovation were developed including new curriculum, centers, corporate and community partnerships, and support services for students, faculty, veterans, and community members.  Programs emphasized experiential education by helping students to start new for-profit or nonprofit ventures, or by enabling students to innovate at their job or internship.  Professor Kingma’s talk  explores the programs in entrepreneurship and innovation education in the iSchool at Syracuse University.  This talk is part of the School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies (SLAIS) colloquium series.
