Fibreculture Journal Issue 14 - 0 views

  •  
    Coauthored by Ien Ang who is a scholar whose work I like. From the intro: "This paper emerges out of an interest in exploring the possible implications of Web 2.0 for the practice of humanities research. Scholars in the humanities have traditionally been dependent on the written word - on the production of intellectually dense discourse - and, in this producerly mode, they tend to be individualist, sole researchers. How can they respond to the challenges posed by Web 2.0 and its seemingly irresistible promotion of a participatory, expressive, and highly visual mode of cultural production?"

Science of the Invisible ~ Stephen's Web ~ by Stephen Downes - 0 views

  • Cost of Peer Review Exceeds the Cost of Giving Every Researcher a Grant Scott Leslie passed this along. "We show that the $40,000 (Canadian) cost of preparation for a grant application and rejection by peer review in 2007 exceeded that of giving every qualified investigator a direct baseline discovery grant of $30,000 (average grant). This means the Canadian Federal Government could institute direct grants for 100% of qualified applicants for the same money." Ironically, this report is published in a subscription-locked peer-reviewed paper, the total cost of which is entangled in the mechanisms for selecting which papers are good enough to publish. Pot, meet kettle. A.J. Cann, Science of the Invisible, April 21, 2009. [Comment] [Link] [Tags: Subscription Services, Books, Canada]

University careers aren't what they used to be | Times Higher Education (THE) - 0 views

  • Traditional” academic roles involving both teaching and research actually slightly declined in number and, for the first time, constituted a minority. Instead it was the rise of teaching-only and research-only contracts that accounted for the growth.
  • here is a perception that career options and opportunities are less important for those not in traditional teaching and research roles.

"Social Media is Here to Stay... Now What?" - 0 views

  •  
    I like danah boyd's work on social media - her writing is very easy to read and always resists & deconstructs the simplifications that the mainstream media come up with in relation to technology and society. This talk is not as research-y as her other papers, but I like it because to a tech-novice such as myself it explains some of the principles behind social networking in easily comprehensible ways. The five properties of social media and three dynamics towards the end of the paper have been helpful for me in thinking about how to understand, and manage, the online mentoring for our social networking project.

Studies Explore Whether the Internet Makes Students Better Writers - Chronicle.com - 0 views

    Maybe interesting to see the results of this study, when it comes out. Msot of it makes intuitive sense (but then I am usually suspicious when that happens ...) I quite liked this exercise: "students are asked to trace the spread of a claim from an academic journal to less prestigious forms of media, like magazines and newspapers, in order to see how arguments are diluted. In another, students are asked to pursue the answer to a research question using only blogs, and to create a map showing how they know if certain information is trustworthy or not."

    This is a JISC backed site covering the use of Web2.0 tools in all areas of academic practice...research, teaching and administration. It's currently looking a bit thin (July 2009) but hopefully it will get fleshed out.
