Higher Ed Digital Identity

  1. 1. Higher Ed Digital Identity: Bringing Your Scholarship & Practice Online #HEdigID @LauraPasquini 2014 AACE E-Learn #elearn14 Virtual Brief Paper New Orleans, LA Laura A. Pasquini, Ph.D. Learning Technologies – @UNTCOI College of Information The Digital Learning & Social Media Research Group, @RoyalRoads

  3. 3. “Technology is a form of culture, a social practice... [however] they don’t arrive in our midst as neutral tools.” Nora Young, “The Virtual Self: How Our Digital Lives are Altering the World Around Us”
  4. 4. What does your digital presence or your identity online say about you? AND Why should you care?
  5. 5. Will you be “Googled well?” asks Richardson (2008). Let’s find out.
  6. 6. “The way we are defined on social media, on the Internet, and on Google has become more important than who we actually are as people.” Jon Ronson, “So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed”
  7. 7. Digital Footprints Digital footprints emerge as we communicate and interact online over social media, content sharing platforms, and by using and subscribing to tools and services (Bodhani, 2012).
  8. 8. The Digital Scholar Movement Martin Weller a.k.a. @mweller & his blog The Ed Techie: digital-scholar-9781849666268/
  9. 9. The Digital Scholar “Impacts for digital scholarship include the quantity of peer-reviewed online information sources, the growth of social, peer academic networks, and the variety and range of content to draw upon for research that has broadened to include drafts of publications, conference presentations, blog posts, video and audio” (Weller, 2011).
  10. 10. The Digital Scholar Revisited "Much of the increased adoption in academia mirrors the wider penetration of social media tools amongst society in general, so academics are more likely to have an identity in such places that mixes professional & personal.” says @mweller
  11. 11. Assessment of Research Performance Measurement of quantity and impact for research can also predict future scholarly behavior. (Vieria & Gomes, 2011)
  12. 12. Literature Review • What is shared through networks may not always be the true story. (Latour, 1986) • Challenge with assessing scientific performance at the individual level (Vieira & Gomes, 2011) • “move the evaluation from the power of the scientific journals to the quality of the single researcher (Castelnuovo, Limonata, Sarmiento & Molinari, 2010, p. 111) • Scholars and educators participate on Twitter (Veletsianos & Kimmons, 2016) and identity development with open practices on social media (Veletsianos, 2013) • Academic influence in a scholarly network (Stewart, 2015) and vulnerabilities in collapsed publics (Stewart, 2016)

  15. 15. Researcher ID
  16. 16. Scopus
  17. 17. Google Scholar Citations
  18. 18. Research Networks
  19. 19. Citation Management
  20. 20. The Social (Media) Scholar Beyond these specific scholarly platforms, we have seen an increase in social networking use, academic blogging or microblogging (e.g. Twitter), and online sharing of images, videos, and audio for both data and research distribution.

  36. 36.
  37. 37. “Academics should utilize these emerging platforms to increase their influence and reach beyond traditional publishing forums. These researcher identification and citation tools are not “just for geeks,” but rather a growing expectation for scholarship development and publication notation. It is a critical time to rethink how research is produced, distributed, and acknowledged.” (Pasquini, Wakefield, Reed & Allen, 2014)
  38. 38. Flickr photo c/o furiousgeorge81 How will you manage your digital identity?
  39. 39. Ask Yourself These First 1) Where are you online right now? 2) What are your goals for being networked professionally? (and personally) 3) How will you engage in connected practice? 4) What are the characteristics or things you should consider in each digital space/platform? 5) What resources are available for you to learn more? Who can mentor/support your practice?
