#SMsociety15 Panel: More Than Just a “Follower”: How Is Academia Being Influenced by Online Communities of Practice & Networked Scholarship?

1,058 views

Published on

#SMsociety15 Conference, Toronto, Canada - July 29, 2015

This panel will focus on the intersections between social media and academia, in relation to the theme of Social Media’s Impact on Society, but discussion will examine impact through the lens of trust and credibility within online communities. In an era of knowledge abundance, scholars have the capacity to distribute and share ideas and artifacts via digital networks and communities of practice. This fosters extensive cross-disciplinary public ties and rewards connection, collaboration, and curation between individuals rather than roles or institutions. These informal online developments and support networks in higher education is contributing to scholarly publications, professional development, and personal support. That being said, participation within these networks offers both opportunities and challenges with engagement. This panel will discuss their perspectives and encourage audience participants to share their stories, questions, and ideas on this topic.
