Stakeholder engagement and transdisciplinary team evolution

Livestock and Local Communities (LLC) was one of the cohort challenges offered through the NSF-funded INFEWS-ER. This presentation shares the advisors' experiences for two cohorts of graduate students that addressed this challenge. The advisory team set the geographical scope for each cohort, with a focus on South Dakota for the first team, and North Carolina for the second. When sharing their work, both cohorts demonstrated their evolution of knowledge, aided by stakeholder engagement. Perspective of what data means was informed by experience and understanding of the system, and this is where engagement was critical. With gained perspective, it changed both cohorts' understanding of the LLC system, but also their perception of their own knowledge. Throughout this process and the cohorts' desires to better understand the system, both cohorts developed or adapted methods to analyze data considering the perspectives they gained.
