Scholarship Values Summit:
Creating healthier and more equitable systems that support scholarship
Hosted by: The Ronin Institute and IGDORE
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.
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.
