Session Type: Learning Circle
Learning occurs by Ã‚â€œthinking out loud,Ã‚â€ as well as by presenting results. ELI will experiment with Ã‚â€œLearning CirclesÃ‚â€ which are collaborative sessions in which a member discusses the Ã‚â€œnext big thingÃ‚â€ they plan to pursue and seeks feedback from the participants. This group exploration also allows you to think about implications for your campus.
Framing question for this learning circle: What do you see as the promise and potential of these developments-and the flip side-the challenges they pose, especially for aspiring scholars?
The basic assumption underlying this session is that scholarship is rapidly evolving. Contemporary writing and other creative works have seen considerable scholarly experimentation, but all areas of scholarship are witnessing examples that diverge from traditional forms and take advantage of emerging media and tools.
