iSchool Research Symposium: Lasting Impacts: A Panel with Three Recent iSchool Award Winners
Monday, November 4, 2019 12:30 pm to 1:20 pm Bloedel 070 Zoom Room
This past year, the iSchool dean and two professors earned lasting impact awards for their research. On this panel, each will discuss the thought process that went into selecting their specific research projects. They will talk about whether they thought these topics would have a lasting impact at the time they formulated their ideas for the projects, or whether lasting impact is something that “just happens.” Do researchers have ways at the inception of their projects to amplify the long-term impacts of their research?
