Participatory Learning and the New Humanities

Subject: on-line
Date: 2009-01-01
This is a conversation with Cathy Davidson, who was interviewed by Academic Commons Magazine.  Davidson teaches English at Duke University and is cofounder of the Humanities, Arts, Science, Technology Advanced Collaboratory.  She discusses "participatory learning" in the digital environment, and speculates on why disciplines in the humanities may slower to adopt.  From the article:  "If we’re going to be thinking about participatory or social learning, what does that do to the idea of expertise? I personally don’t think it really undermines it, but many of the formal ways that we evaluate good work--mainly peer review--will undergo a significant transformation, at least expansion."
