Some say the scholar-practitioner form of knowledge creation started with Kurt Lewin in the 1950’s. Others contend that it is the most natural form of knowledge creation practiced by people throughout time. This 30 minute video introduces the basic tenets of action research. After contrast is made with conventional social science, participants are left with: […]
Implementation science is based on observations and evidence accumulated since the 1960s. Even at this early stage, it is becoming clear there is a continuum of research, evaluation, and theorizing. One end of the continuum is marked by basic research and the other by applied research. Basic research is investigator/interest driven, focuses first on internal […]
This video describes how a complexity science based toolbox, especially different types of modelling, is used in complex multiple use environments, such as the coastal zones of Australia, to examine different scenarios for sustainable fishing options. The video starts by describing elements of complexity such as operating at scales from minute organisms up to areas […]
A new discipline – Integration and Implementation Sciences (I2S) – could provide a systematic way to allow people to effectively mix-and-match concepts and methods from systems thinking, inter- and trans-disciplinarity, implementation science, team science, complexity science and other approaches to more effectively deal with complex real-world problems. I2S has three domains: 1) synthesis of disciplinary […]
This video overview of interdisciplinarity identifies major developments over a century of work in an expanding variety of contexts, the communities of practices that emerged, and current trendlines. (Interdisciplinarity is nearing its 100th anniversary, dating from the earliest documented uses of the term in the early 20th century.) The overview then weighs implications of common […]
Resource Type:
Responding to the persistent problems of unsustainability and other global challenges needs a transformation of the knowledge system as a whole. As this video describes, this includes a transformation in research funding and in education. For effective implementation-oriented research, stakeholders have to be involved both in the design of research programmes and in all phases […]
Recent technological advances provide comprehensive digital traces of social actions, interactions, and transactions and are described in this video. These data provide an unprecedented exploratorium to model the socio-technical motivations for creating, maintaining, dissolving, and reconstituting into teams. This presentation uses examples from research on scientific collaboration and massively multiplayer online games to argue that […]
Resource Type:
Introduces a range of tools for being more influential in bringing about evidence-based policy and practice change. The tools were developed by the ODI (Overseas Development Institute) Research and Policy in Development Programme (RAPID). In this videoed workshop participants had the opportunity to try out the Alignment, Interest and Influence Matrix (AIIM) tool, which is […]
We live in an increasingly interconnected world where there are few simple policy solutions to complex, often “wicked” problems, and an increasing number of stakeholders with multiple, often divergent incentives are involved in decision-making. While there is often convincing research-based evidence about what works and what doesn’t work, there is no simple mechanism to translate […]
Project management, as a field of practice and aspiring discipline has enjoyed strong professional formation, driven by active associations of practitioners. In promoting project management as a discipline in its own right, these practitioners and their associations have worked to delimit it from other disciplines and define it through practice standards. As a result project […]
