.@NSERC_CRSNG's take on the word soup of this challenging evaluation area #CSPC2019
The Naylor report, @cca_reports do point to areas of weakness or emerging topics. Also, internationally. What are they doing?

After that, what to do with that info?

Is there money to throw? Or policy actions (like inc. risk in peer review?)

My #CSPC2019 live tweeting #THREAD starts here!

I'll reply to this tweet w/ each panel I attend, creating a thread under each w/ live notes

My schedule: 🔗

And, ICYMI, see the new CSPC magazine for my op-ed about @DSP_SPE & #CapacityBuilding in #scipol!
I wasn't intending on tweeting the symposium, but 2 really good points on skills:

🔹 For communications, the ability to be brief (tweet length summaries!) is key

🔹 Universities should promote organic mentorship by leveraging alumni office, get alums to meet students over ☕!
🔹 Skills development has strong socio-economic dimension. Accessibility to good schooling even as early as Kindergarten can have large impacts later in life. The foundation of transferable (read: critical) skills stays with you as you later develop expertise.
