Connecting scholarly activity to learners, thinkers, and doers
open access, creative commons, altmetrics, knowledge mobilization
What is the point of disseminating research and scholarship if no one is engaging with it? This session will discuss ways that the Internet can be used to facilitate knowledge translation, sharing, and discussions of research to build connections, launch innovations, enrich student learning, and benefit communities. Tools discussed will include ORCID, open access and open peer review infrastructure, and social media platforms. Participants will be encouraged to explore ways to take advantage of these tools to help ensure that their research and scholarship is having the broadest possible impact and reach.
