The Knowledge Paradox: How Can Expertise Be Dead Amidst Ubiquitous Information?
The disparagement of expertise at a time of ubiquity of information is forcing universities and scholars to redefine their role as experts. Universities must engage more deeply and differently with society to co-create and diffuse knowledge. Citizen science and crowd-sourcing are among options for universities to move forward and find new ways to collectively address societal challenges. Attendees will interact with panelists through both questions and electronic comments posted on a screen alongside the podium.
