4 Summary

This week you have looked at what might be considered the core scholastic activity: research. You have been introduced to the research landscape and some of the research activities where the use of digital technologies is starting to have an impact. You have also been introduced to the idea of ‘guerrilla research’ and, hopefully, given some thought as to how you might use this approach in your own practice. Finally, you have considered some of the key characteristics of digital scholarship: openness, collaboration and speed. Watch out for these strands reappearing in later weeks.

Next week you will consider the potential of networked technologies.
