By Laura Delgaty, Senior Lecturer and Chair of NUTELA
Martin Weller, Professor of Educational Technology at the Open University gave us an excellent update on the digital scholar during a webinar held on 30 April 2018.
Using Boyer’s model of scholarship as a framework, he explained that digital scholarship increases student recruitment, engagement and research impact. By addressing scholarship and increasing open resources, we are able to attract different and larger audiences and this in itself can be a valuable research tool and method. He reviewed some valuable opportunities and threats and highlighted the value of digital scholarship for early career researchers, academics and encouraged collaboration for both staff and students.
Overall, fantastic presentation and great questions. You can find the recording here
