In the final week of a 4-week online workshop where faculty explore Digital Pedagogy, Identity, Networks, and Scholarship (#DigPINS), we will be discussing digital scholarship in a live Twitter chat. I invite all interested in joining this Thursday, November 16th at
2pm (EST) 3pm EST using #DigPINS.
Here are some of the questions we have been thinking about:
- How important are access (being able to obtain) and access (being able to be understood by multiple audiences) to your research?
- If misinterpretation is inevitable in public spaces, what can scholars do to protect themselves or more importantly, what institutional support is needed?
- How are scholarship practices changing with the digital?
- What does digital scholarship afford you?
Check out the following readings:
Everything But The Burden: Publics, Public Scholarship, And Institutions – Tressie McMillan Cottom
Access vs. Accessibility in Scholarship and Science – Rick Anderson
For participants unfamiliar with synchronous Twitter chats, @sundilu (that’t me) will post 4-5 questions at regular intervals during the hour long chat in order to lead/feed the discussion. You can join in by answering a question or replying directly to tweets of others who have answered. Please tag every post with #DigPINS so we can follow what you post. Lurkers are always welcome (feel free to just “listen”).
#DigPINS is an ongoing group of faculty and staff (currently at Davidson College) exploring digital-ness in higher ed.
