Paul Marty, Candy Schwartz, Julie Hersberger, Brad Hemminger and Chip Bruce

(Submission #27)


In keeping with the conference theme of social computing and information science, this panel session will explore the use of blogs, wikis, podcasts, virtual reality, and other social computing technologies (SCT) in LIS education. Panelists, all of whom are active users of SCT in their own classes, will discuss the different ways in which SCT have revolutionized LIS education, including teaching about SCT, using SCT for pedagogical purposes, and preparing students to implement SCT on the job to meet the needs of their information organizations.
