I like the idea of "thinking together". And I invite you to think with me, and your peers, about the legacies of the LSC. I think this idea is important because it could help redefine the very reason we do this work. and the ways we assess its value. As an evaluator, I can tell you I am tired of looking at NSF investments and asking the wrong questions about those investments. It is really up to all of us to create an accurate and responsible conceptualization of the ways in which NSF investments bring important benefits to education. If we do not help NSF and the public think about LSCs and other projects correctly, then it is likely that the wrong demands will be made of these projects. So let's think together about the important legacies left behind by these LSCs.
I look forward to hearing from you!
