We are organising Expertise? A Scoping Workshop, a day-long workshop and symposium exploring Expertise and Digital Transformations, on the 15 November, 9am-6.30pm, at the University of Sussex in Brighton.
The event contributes to the scoping study by setting out to extend and explore three key issues:
- Academic/disciplinary understandings of expertise – as socially constructed, as acquired through training and embedded as habitus, as marking an elevated level of skill or craft knowledge, as a cognitive capacity, as code-knowledge.
- How specific community and cultural groups understand digital transformations and expertise (through interviews and focus groups – e.g. with advocacy organizations, voluntary groups, arts/heritage groups, health groups and education organizations).
- Policy and government attitudes to digital transformation (required responses to it) across a range of relevant fields in order to find consensus and break points.
A scoping workshop exploring expertise in the context of digital transformation, cultures and communities.
