Publishing as a Pedagogical Tool

An increasing number of faculty are using publishing as a pedagogical tool by encouraging students to make their work public and usable by others. From blog posts and Wikipedia entries to apps and open-source tools, they introduce opportunities for students to acquire new literacies: publishing, visual, and digital. At the same time, the public nature of these works raises important questions about student authorship, copyright, privacy, and responsibility.

How should new modes of writing and publishing change what students do and learn in the classroom? How can we mitigate the risks, benefit from the possibilities, and learn from emerging communication methods the ways to create positive change in the scholarly publishing system? Join us as we explore these questions with a group of panelists who bring varied perspectives and experiences on how publishing tools and the act of creating public-facing works in the classroom change our approach to teaching.
