3: Online Community

Create an online community that can also be a catalyst for transdisciplinary networking and research.

Other Information:

The Alliance’s third initiative is what you see taking place on this website -- the creation of an online community that can also be a catalyst for transdisciplinary networking and research. Members of the University of Maryland community who use the site can log in to find out who else is involved and what their interests are. We have opted to explore the possibilities of Twitter as a means to that end -- as you will see when you peruse these pages. In addition, we have created a space for what we are calling "FIA Curators" -- members of campus community who will host pages devoted to the diverse dimensions of information and the issues going forward. Each of these curated pages will include a brief introduction to a theme, a list of useful links, and a Twitter feed that anyone can access and to which anyone may contribute by using the relevant #hashtags.
