As part of our series exploring the Digital Scholar we’re running a workshop to help explore how we are engaging with digital spaces and digital technologies.  This session also links with our previous Learning X series on Learning footprints.  Staff and students are welcome to attend the workshop and you don’t need to have worked through any of the online activities beforehand.

The workshop will have a go at debunking the myth around digital natives and digital immigrants and asking you to think about how you use different technologies in your personal and professional lives.  By using a scholarly/research project lifecycle framework we’ll explore how different technologies can be used across our scholarly practice.  As we go on to consider how we keep up to date with developments in our various disciplines, plan and implement projects and then disseminate our findings we’ll also see how digital spaces can also become a focus of scholarly research.  Time will also be given to think about some of the privacy and ethical issues surrounding the use of digital tools in both our professional and social lives.

We’ve run this workshop previously at academic conferences and it’s proved to be a great opportunity to share and learn from others.  The workshop will be running twice and we hope you can join us for one of the dates outlined below in the Strawberry Bank Ideas Lab on Floor 1 of the Main Library.
