Plenary Pathways: Assessment & next steps

02 Jul 2019
Groups audience: 

Hi, all,
We are planning to give the Plenary Pathways another go at the Helsinki
plenary and are looking for theme recommendations. Here are the Pathways
from last Plenary https://www.rd-alliance.org/rda-plenary-13/pathways and
attached please find a brief summary of responses received to the
assessment survey for these. Despite the sparse response, I am assured that
there were over 600 hundred of unique page views!
Please let me know if you have recommendations for new pathways that you or
your organization would find useful.
Thank you!
Best,
Amy

    Hi all,
    I feel this is a newbie question but were the previous pathways formed based on what proposals were received, or had the received proposals been labelled under the five pathways mentioned?
    I support the idea of providing pathways as long as they are seen as helpful guidelines and not fairly strictly formed tracks through the conference. My experience on tracks is that people feel that they have to follow one or two, and therefore find this approach more appealing.
    I wonder if FAIR is necessary as a pathway? Despite the sessions particularly aiming to develop the FAIR agenda I see the topics there belonging mostly to RDM and service/infrastructure building. It is catchy as a title, though. I see “professional development/education” as a potential topic. It could gather content that provides instruction or learning experiences (incl. workplace learning and communities of practice).
    Cheers,
    -Tuomas

    Hi, Tuomas,
    Thank you for the question.
    In the two times pathways have been done, they were derived from the
    program/approved proposals. The intention in providing the pathways is
    meant to help attendees sort through what may be an overwhelming
    experience. As we have tried to present them, they are not meant to be
    prescriptive or strictures or traditional conference tracks in the
    traditional sense.
    Also, thank you for sharing your thoughts around the themes for both FAIR
    and professional development/education. It is much appreciated!
    Best,
    Amy
