Beginning next Friday, October 1st, at 2pm EST, the Information policy and Information Ethics SIGs will be meeting monthly to hold a research and teaching discussion group. On every first Friday afternoon, we will have a pre-determined topic to discuss followed by a period for open conversation. It is our intention to do this in order to hold onto the energy that builds from the annual conference and carry it into the rest of the academic year.
Next Friday our topic will be on how LIS faculty is addressing the pandemic in the classroom, as an issue that may affect information policy and bring to light ethical considerations- not as the pandemic has influenced course delivery. We invite all members of the field to attend, regardless of your membership of our SIGs or ALISE.
If you would like to be part of this informal, collegial discussion group, please contact us for the zoom link. We hope to see a lot of you there!
