In 2007, the National Science Board issued recommendations for improving the nation’s capacity to identify and fund transformative research. Two recent projects supported by the National Science Foundation have examined the concept of transformative research in the context of geography: a National Academies study Fostering Transformative Research in the Geographical Sciences and a research coordination network for transformative research in geography education. In this panel, representatives from these initiatives will share examples of transformative research, discuss the mechanisms and conditions that have led to significant advancements in geographical theory and practice, and explore strategies for facilitating the transfer of knowledge developed by transformative research in ways that benefit society and improve geography teaching and learning.
