Dr. Benoît Godin (INRS, Montréal)

"X-innovation: A Story of Appropriation and Contestation"

 Much has been written on technological innovation in the last sixty years. A whole industry of books and articles offers theories, frameworks and models to make sense of technological innovation and contribute to public policies and firm strategies. Because of (or thanks to) technological innovation, innovation has become part of our everyday vocabulary, even a buzzword. Yet, technological innovation is only one of many kinds of innovation. It is also one of the many terms that make use of innovation. In recent years, innovation gave rise to a plethora of terms like social innovation, open innovation, sustainable innovation, responsible innovation and the like. I call these terms X-innovation. How can we make sense of this semantic extension? Why do these terms come into being? What drives people to coin new terms and what do they want to achieve? What effects do the terms have on thought, culture and scholarship? This talks offers answers to these questions through a conceptual and historical analysis of the terms that define the semantic field of innovation today.

Brown Bag Lunch Session

Brown Bag Lunch Session

When:
Tuesday, October 10, 2017
11:45 AM – 12:45 PM
Where:
Goodes Hall
Room: 102
Find on Campus Map
Description:

These informal presentations are led by Smith School of Business faculty and students; Queen’s faculty or members from the Kingston and area community and are open to everyone. One hour in length, the presentations include an overview of a research idea or paper, during which questions and comments are encouraged, followed by time for conversation and feedback.

Join us to hear from Dr. Wendy Craig, Professor and Head of Psychology, Queen's University.  Wendy is presenting, "The Challenges in Mobilizing Knowledge for Social Impact: Bullying a Case Example.

Given the high prevalence of bullying in Canada, the research examining knowledge mobilization is critical because much of what is learned from research fails to reach stakeholders. Current scientific knowledge is not getting into the hands of the right people – those involved in children’s lives such as parents, teachers, recreation leaders, and youth themselves.
 
Research on knowledge mobilization processes and mechanisms that accelerate the impact of research on bullying prevention is needed to bridge the gap between research and practice. The goal of this talk is to present a knowledge mobilization evaluation framework that can be implemented to evaluate the social impact.
