Description: The seminar explores digital knowledge platforms (e-learning, publishing, collaborative research, crowd-sourced) that uphold our academic mission to disseminate knowledge by enabling teachers, students and researchers to discover, analyze, and share information without regard to barriers of space and time. These same platforms, however, raise questions about expertise, access, metrics, power shifts, and academic autonomy. Repeatable for Credit.
