Alternative Strategic Future for iSchools
Being a "School of Information" has become popular, and the iSchools' "iCaucus" already has 59 institutional members. In addition to re-branding and opportunism, what are the strategic options for such schools for academic planning and self-characterization? Four radically different alternatives will be identified, compared, and discussed.
This talk is based on a discussion at the UCLA Department of Information on January 15, 2015.
