The Personal Research Portal: The Virtual Faculty or the Net behind the Classroom
MetadataShow full item record
In this presentation, Ismael Peña-López expands on his previous research into personal research portals to propose ways in which educators may use web 2.0 tools to build themselves a place on the net - a personal research portal where they may weave their own network of colleagues, share resources, and exchange experiences. The presentation will look at how these personal research portals may impact on the tasks in which educators engage in outside of the classroom, be it of bricks and mortar or virtual. In addition, the presentation will examine the possibilty of a virtual faculty based on personal portals built with web 2.0 tools.
