The rise of the social web has wrought staggering changes to almost every facet of life, from our identities and relationships to the ways in which we communicate and learn. In many cases, however, academia in general and academic scholarship in particular have been slow to expand into the digital sphere. In this session, Alec Couros will outline the potential power of engaging in networked forms of scholarship and will provide participants with strategies and tools to assist academics in participating meaningfully in digital spaces.

Speaker: Alec Couros, Associate Professor, Information and Communication Technologies, Faculty of Education, University of Regina
