Alternative Event - Plan Play Pressure Pause. Engaging Creative Information Practices (#AE5)

Dear Colleagues,

Please join us in developing a discourse to help frame a new research area to engage and envision investigations into creative information practices. This event will critically engage participants in creative practices by drawing upon Anderson’s 4P heuristic (plan, play, pressure, pause) to scaffold creative engagements. Each of these “Ps” represents a different way of engaging with information. Working on the premise that having a mix of the four is critical in nurturing an innovative culture, participants are invited to become more mindful of the mix that might best suit their own contexts: be it in their personal practice or the practice of the communities they wish to serve. To wrap-up, participants envision next steps in this emerging research area.

Time: Wednesday, 13/Feb/2013: 3:30pm - 5:00pm


Location: Pecos 1, Worthington Renaissance Hotel, Fort Worth, Texas

Event organizers: Theresa Dirndorfer Anderson, Leanne Bowler, Lisa Nathan, Eileen Trauth
