What I’m reading 5 Mar 2016 through 7 Mar 2016

  • Should Academics Talk to Katie Couric? – The Chronicle – Once more into the breech of consumption. Don't make me think! "Academic writing has the benefit of scholarly rigor, full documentation, and original thinking. But the transmission of our ideas is routinely hampered — understandably, given academe’s publication, evaluation, and tenure conditions — by a great deal of peer-oriented jargon." – (rhetoric academicwriting scholarship2.0 )
  • Coming Down From the Clouds: On Academic Writing – The Chronicle – A defense rather than an apologia for scholarly writing. We're not writing for The General Public. We're writing on the edge of knowledge – and that requires some effort. "Yes, some academic writing is more abstruse than it needs to be. No doubt, scholarship should not be hidden behind expensive paywalls. And, yes, academics, like all people, are shaped by the conditions of their employment. … But the story is more complicated." "there is a risk when we mistakenly assume that public and scholarly writing are the same thing — that one is good and clear and the other is needlessly complex." – (scholarship2.0 composition academia2.0 academicwriting )
  • Fear of Screens – The New Inquiry – Jurgenson, review of Reclaiming Conversation, Turkle. "Why would anyone want to believe that people who are communicating with phones have forgotten what friendship is?" My notes on http://mcmorgan.wikity.cc/digital-dualism/ – (mediation identity semiotics )

  • zombiescholar [licensed for non-commercial use only] / More Brains! – Weller and Groom. State of the academy: " The uptake of new technologies in research and associated practices can be seen as a barometer for innovation within higher education. … We suggest one possible antidote to this zombification of higher education is the use of new technologies and particularly the cultural norms they embody." Yes, and yes again. Complication arises when the local culture is a Dawn of the Dead shopping mall. – (ple mooc OER research scholarship2.0 D2L en3177 )
