The habitus of digital scholars

The habitus of digital scholars | PhD | Scoop.it

This article concerns the Participatory Web and the impact it has on academic researchers’ perceptions of digital scholarship practices. The Participatory Web, as a space of active involvement, presence and socialisation of knowledge, has the potential to introduce significant changes to scholarly practice and to diversify it. This article draws on the findings of a narrative inquiry study that investigated the habitus of 10 digital scholars.


Via Nik Peachey
Enrico De Angelis's insight:

It seems very important to me the following statement: «The integration of the Participatory Web in scholarly practice means a change in the conventions of (co)creating, discussing and making new knowledge more accessible to different audiences»!!!

Ten reasons we should ditch university lectures

Ten reasons we should ditch university lectures | PhD | Scoop.it

The recorded lecture has some straightforward practical advantages. Students can rewind if their attention has lapsed, or if they don't understand what they've heard, or if English is not their first language. They can pause to take better notes or if they need to look something up.

Students can also choose to watch the lecture when they're in an attentive state, rather than when they're feeling tired or distracted. They can watch again for revision or improved retention, or fast-forward through anything they're already familiar with. They don't need to waste time travelling to or from the lecture hall.

There are also deeper pedagogical benefits. Paradoxically, a student watching a lecture online may be able to forge a closer connection with the lecturer than one watching the lecture live.

New partnership to support 10,000 new PhDs in Africa - University World News

A high-level forum hosted by the Senegalese government in collaboration with the World Bank has recommended training 10,000 new PhD holders in applied sciences, engineering and technology in the next 10 years, in a bid to boost Africa’s capacity for socio-economic transformation and development.

In a detailed Call-to-Action memorandum released by the World Bank on 30 June, participants said there was an urgent need to develop a pool of competent scientists, engineers and technologists in Africa who could increase innovation and create jobs.

The Call-to-Action describes a new partnership that will lead the skills-building agenda and set up a regional scholarship programme among other things. It also stresses the need for technical education to be made more market-relevant.

“We need to find solutions to Africa’s problems and drive the transition to higher productivity and value-added products and services that can compete globally,” it says, highlighting the need to build more skills in applied sciences, engineering and technology across Africa.

The forum held last month and attended by ministers, academics and higher and technical institution representatives, had participants from Angola, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania and Zambia, as well as representatives from Brazil, China, India and South Korea.

Quitting my PhD to work on Ideapod has unlocked my potential in a way that doctoral research was never able to do. It has been a journey of highs and lows, but I feel incredibly fulfilled, alive, and in flow with everything I'm doing.

More research, less fundraising - London Free Press | PhD | Scoop.it

Rather than simply give money to scientists to pursue important work that might lead to medical treatment, a growing number of agencies and charities require scientists to match grants with their own fundraising.

“It diverts us as scientists from what we do best. We become fundraisers,” said Dr. Bill Avison, who chairs the Children’s Health Research Institute in London and the Council for Canadian Child Health Research.

Pendant que François Hollande s’occupait de distraire la galerie en présentant des vœux pleins de belles paroles au monde éducatif, un sénateur socialiste, M. Vandierendonck, et un sénateur UMP, M. Hyest, faisaient de conserve voter par amendement, en toute discrétion, la régionalisation des formations de l’enseignement supérieur. Désormais, comme l’indiquent les deux sénateurs co-auteurs de l’amendement, « la région [aura] un rôle d’approbation de la carte des formations supérieures et de la recherche ».

Dutch universities fight publishers over open access

Dutch universities fight publishers over open access | PhD | Scoop.it

Dutch universities have vowed not to soften their groundbreaking demands for publishers to permit all papers published by their academics to be made open access for no extra charge.

In January last year, Sander Dekker, the Dutch minister for education, culture and science, decreed that 60 percent of Dutch research articles must be open access by 2019 and 100 percent by 2024. Dutch university presidents responded by agreeing to make their renewal of subscription deals dependent on publishers taking steps to realize this goal.

"Fanal ecològic Eolgreen"... the first public lighting system that runs on wind+solar

"Fanal ecològic Eolgreen"... the first public lighting system that runs on wind+solar | PhD | Scoop.it

A researcher belonging to the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Barcelona College of Industrial Engineering (EUETIB) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and the company Eolgreen have designed the first public lighting system that runs on solar and wind power. The prototype street lights are 20% cheaper to run than conventional lighting systems.

This system, developed after four years of research, is designed for inter-urban roads, motorways, urban parks and other public areas. It is unique in the world and reduces the cost by 20% compared with conventional public lighting systems.
The prototype is 10 metres high and is fitted with a solar panel, a wind turbine and a battery.

The turbine runs at a speed of 10 to 200 revolutions per minute (rpm) and has a maximum output of 400 watts (W). The developers’ aim is to make the lighting system even more environmentally efficient, so work is being done on a second prototype generator that runs at a lower speed (10 to 60 rpm) and has a lower output (100 W). An electronic control system manages the flow of energy between the solar panel, the wind turbine, the battery and the light.
