George Veletsianos, Royal Roads University, Canada
In this presentation, Dr. George Veletsianos, Canada Research Chair in Innovative Learning and Technology, draws on a number of studies conducted to examine academics' and educators' participation in networked spaces. These studies point to three significant findings: (a) increasingly open practices that question the traditions of academia, (b) personal-professional tensions in academic work, and (c) a framework of identity that contrasts sharply with our existing understanding of online identity.
