Ontology Summit 2010: Future "Content" - community input     (1)

This is the workspace for community input to the focused discussion outlined below ...     (1A)

Track Label: Content - Subtrack Label: Future     (1B)

Mission: To provide a course or courses of content required for both professional and academic ontologist training.     (1B2)

  • We will initially focus on a breadth-first description     (1B3)
  • We are intent on identifying modules of knowledge/courses that are focused on competencies expected for ontologist education     (1B4)
    • That could be addressed at different levels of certification/accreditation, with some optional and some required at each level     (1B4A)
    • Example levels: associate degree (undergraduate 2 years), undergraduate degree (undergraduate 4 years), terminal professional master's degree (graduate), pre-PhD master's degree (graduate), professional non-academic certification     (1B4B)

Pertinent questions     (1B5)

  • What are the content topics (knowledge and skills), i.e., the competencies, necessary for training and educating an ontologist?     (1B5A)
  • What does an ontologist need to learn and in what order?     (1B5B)
  • What are the content topics useful or optionally desired for training and educating an ontologist?     (1B5C)
  • Is there a spectrum of ontologist positions (e.g., from taxonomist to developer of logical theories) and if so, what is the content and competencies required for each?     (1B5D)
