The Blog on Emerging Academic Technologies


How we learn about technology

This week some of us in OIT's Emerging Academic Technologies group shared our favorite resources for learning about technology. Pat Haggerty, Tatiana Genrich, Nick Rosencrans and I all posted, and there may be a few more posts from others on the way.

What I've learned so far: my colleagues read widely, and we read some of the same blogs. Some delve more deeply into specific subjects, others are more dilettantish. We read news and reports, and sometimes are involved in online communities of interest. And now I know why my colleagues are so knowledgeable: those long lists of resources show that we not only read widely, we are motivated to learn.
