The podcast of the Oct. 22 CNI Conversations session is now available at http://conversations.cni.org/ (to subscribe to the audio feed add http://conversations.cni.org/feed to iTunes, or any podcatcher). During this session, CNI Executive Director Clifford Lynch discusses the NSF data management requirements, as well as the National Academy’s updated report on the future of higher education, Rising Above the Gathering Storm, Revisited: Rapidly Approaching Category 5, and ARL’s 2030 Scenario User’s Guide. Cliff also talks about other NSF activities (such as the Campus Bridging Task Force of the Office of Cyberinfrastructure), and archiving social media.
Associate Director Joan Lippincott discusses coordination between space planning initiatives and curriculum and learning objectives, and PKAL’s new program, the Learning Spaces Collaboratory. Listener queries have to do with the proposed budgetary cuts to higher education in the UK, and the organization The Quilt.
