[Yasmin_discussions] key processes to enable Enabling new forms of collaboration among sciences, engineering, arts, and design


our yasmin discussion on snapshots of what you think are emerging
art/sci/tech trends
has dried up

what issues/problems that have increased in the last five years ?- we
still solicit
your thoughts that will be folded into the update of the SEAD report ( )
in February 2016

We thought we would seed this discussion with other ways to think about what is
going on- in the SEAD report we identified some 13 processes we thought were key
to helping improve the situation- i list them here

if any yasminer would like to inject a thought-please do ! what has been
happening in one of these processes over the past five years ? what is
a snapshot of what you are working on now that will have an impact in the
next five years

for instance processes 10 and 11 are about collaborating

an example in process 10 is the work of the science of collaboration
group and their report on improving the effectiveness of science teams
which has methodologies totally applicable to collaboration between
art, design, humanities and science and engineering

what other progress do you know about on developing better practices
and methods for art/sci/tech collaboration ?

for process 11 about collaboration between organisations-

in the USA there are two new organisations of relevance
one is the A2RU ,, alliance for the arts in research
and also the Innovation Collaborative
which cross links organisations such as the US National Art Education
National Science Teachers Association and the Association of Science
and Technology

what new organisations have been formed over the last 5 years in europe
asia south america.....??

here are all 13 processes, we welcome snapshot updates in any of these

Steps to an Ecology of Networked Knowledge and Innovation:
Enabling new forms of collaboration
among sciences, engineering, arts, and design

TRANSLATING: Problem-driven connections among academic, commercial,
and civil societies
1. Project formation and translational value

CONVENING: Overcoming transdisciplinary thresholds
2. Conferences, workshops, camps

ENABLING: Sustaining balanced SEAD relationships
3. Forming safe, productive environments for hybrid individuals
and practices

INCLUDING: Spurring innovation through diversity
4. Communities addressing global issues and local solutions

EMBEDDING: Public engagement and negotiation
5. Outreach, "citizen science," dissemination

SITUATING: An emerging ecology of creative places
6. "Alt spaces"

SENSE-MAKING: Multimodal knowledge and ways of knowing
7. Integrating understandings through the SEAD perspectives

DOCUMENTING: Recording and transmitting
8. Capturing, publishing, curating, archiving

LEARNING: Tapping into the passion and creativity of lifelong curiosity
9. Sharing blended experiences

COLLABORATING: Methodologies working across disciplines and institutions
10. Collaborations between individuals and disciplines
11. Partnering across organizational boundaries

THRIVING: SEAD ingredients as essential contributors to healthy communities
