Outline

The session will explore the idea of ‘digital scholarship’, or how we can use online digital media and networks to engage in the sharing and development of academic knowledge, also looking at how we can harness social media and online networks to develop our own educational practice; engage students in co-creative pedagogic approaches; share good practice with others; and increase engagement with our own scholarly and research outputs. Drawing upon a range of practical examples, a key aim of the webinar is for participants to identify at least one way in which they could benefit from engaging (or further engaging) in digital scholarship activity.
