Mind the Google gap - How to ensure that researchers adopt the latest tools and techniques
The scientific communication community, especially those who are developing new tools and gadgets, naturally think that those who are supposed to use them are as informed and similarly as excited as they are. This isn’t always the case – both in academia and industry – but it can be changed. Moving researchers away from traditional functions, such as Google workflows, is a continuous transformation process. ETH Zurich believes that information centers in academic and corporate institutions could and should engage in the transformation process.
In this webinar, Doctor Oliver Renn of ETH Zurich, explains how the University has successfully developed and introduced new formats that encourages students and researchers to fully utilize the latest tools and discovery techniques. Presenting and sharing experiences via Coffee Lectures, Research Group Menus, and a 2 ECTS PhD course at the institution, the new formats are provided face-to-face, in the belief that personal interaction makes the difference and can initiate the “click” that starts the adoption and change process.
Doctor Renn will explore these new formats and more in this latest instalment of the Springer Nature Meet the Expert webinars.
