Yes it’s Open but is it any Good? Reflections on an Open Reading Initiative of Scholarly Research
February 25, 2022 @ 00:00
This webinar focuses on the growth of open science and the plethora of open access scholarly publications in the area of digital education—for better and worse. It begins by reflecting on the 6th edition of the NIDL “top 10” good reads in the field of digital education. This exercise identifies a collection of scholarly open access articles published over the previous year that make a valuable contribution to the literature. A panel discussion then considers the challenge of finding time to “slow” read the literature and shares critical strategies for keeping abreast of the rapidly evolving literature. We ask what should you be reading? What was your top read from 2021? How do you filter the literature to ascertain whether a publication or journal article is worth reading? How much time do you spend ‘slow’ reading the literature each month and is this long enough? Just how “good” is the open-access literature?
