Digital Scholar on Research

Well i’ve just stumbled across and it looks like a good portal for aggregating research blogs from a wide range of disciplines. I *think* I’m now part of their site, but I’m not sure.

I say ‘stumbled across’ but actually it was from looking at this interesting and useful presentation by Alex Hardman and others at University of Manchester, available on slideshare

I’m currently writing something similiar for a DISCO workshop next monday, based on the same thing as my last blog.  Should be an interesting afternoon.

I think that sometimes condensing a paper into a presentation format can be a useful way of focussing on the message that you are trying to convey, and the structure of the paper itself. I wonder if other people feel the same?


About digitalscholar

I am a sociologist with an interest in new technology. Previously I’ve worked on a number of projects at Lancaster University and the Open University looking at the use of new technologies and social media by researchers. I was also a social sciences teaching fellow at the foundation centre at Durham University teaching sociology and anthropology. I am now a senior lecturer at the University of West London's Institute for Teaching, Innovation and Learning where I oversee the foundation provision and support retention. I'm sure I'll still be interested in, and occasionally blog about, tech related things. I use this blog to post thoughts about using new technologies in my professional academic life and wider thoughts and links relating to technology more generally.
