Call for Volunteers and Ideas for Taskforce on Technological Innovation in Political Science

The 2015-17 APSA presidential taskforce will focus on enhancing political scientists’ capacity to develop and use technological innovations in their research, teaching, and public engagement. It will begin with two main foci, although of course task force members may expand or change these foci as they do their work. One goal is to bring together technological innovations already taking place within political science, in a way that makes them accessible and valuable to a wide range of users. The other goal is to create new technological tools and concepts that respond to scholars’ and students’ expressed needs, or that will spark new ways to study, teach, and communicate. For these and any other foci, it will be essential to set up a system for maintaining innovations after the task force has completed its work; that will entail working closely with APSA staff who are themselves innovating technologically.
