Back from Frye

I just returned from an intense two weeks at the Frye Leadership Institute at Emory. There were about 50 participants, mainly from the IT and academic library domains. As a faculty member, it was really interesting to get a perspective of the university through other eyes.

There were a lot of talks but also some group work. Here is some work that my group did on our hypothetical university, Maverick U.

The main intersection with my interests revolved around social software and other non-traditional modes of communicating scholarship (especially scientific), including implications for tenure and promotion. The librarians were also very much interested in discussing their role in the archiving and retrieval of new forms of documents. Of course, nothing was resolved, but the dialogue is open and we'll continue to share our thoughts and experiments as we move forward.

The best part of all this was meeting and engaging with a group of terrific people, especially when we played Weboggle.
