Out of Our Hands or Out of Our Minds? Using Distributed, Collaborative Tools to Crowd-Source Content Creation in Humanities Classes

5 views

Published on

This presentation proposes distributed content production as a process of shared knowledge creation that provides value and relevance to humanities courses, highlights the value of student contributions, and reduces student reliance on instructor-gathered resources. Using a Twitter hashtag and a Google Doc, we will solicit content about distributed learning as we discuss approaches to distributed learning with the audience. The interactive nature of the session will show how online audiences can help inform in-person conversations and how classroom discussions can benefit from broader perspectives when the boundaries between class and life blur.
