The New Scholarship

Tuesday, January 23 | 5:30PM–6:30PM | Dogwood A Room
Session Type: Professional Development
Learning occurs by “thinking out loud,” as well as by presenting results. ELI will experiment with “Learning Circles” which are collaborative sessions in which a member discusses the “next big thing” 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.
