The Digital Scholar: How Technology Is Transforming Scholarly Practice : Bloomsbury Academic

The Digital Scholar: How Technology Is Transforming Scholarly Practice : Bloomsbury Academic | Online books | Scoop.it

"The book itself, available as open access."

 

@nfreear: this book is by Prof. Martin Weller. I've started dipping into this online, and it's an interesting and thought-provoking read. I'll probably get the print edition. Martin is very active as an Ed. Tech blogger, researcher and speaker.
