3 How might digital scholarship look?
Bryan Alexander is an educator with a particular interest in how education and technology intersect.
Watch the following video of Bryan talking about a digital scholarship scenario.
Some of the points Bryan makes might be described as amplification: the way in which digital technologies enable scholars to ‘do more scholarship’. One aspect of this could be the way in which digital methods of working allow the construction of richer, more detailed models of an area of study. This would be made available to a wider audience and might also attract contributions that help to develop the work further.
Activity _unit2.3.1 Activity 2 Consider your own practice
Think about how digital, networked and open technology has influenced one area of your own practice. It could be a small change, or a large one. How do you see it developing in the near future? How significant is this change for how you operate?
(If you do not have an example from your own practice, then consider how writing and disseminating research findings has changed.) Make some notes. You could share this reflection on your blog using the hashtag #dscholar.
