#mosomelt week6 The Power of Open Scholarship

This week We explore updating the concept of the Scholarship Of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) for the post web 2.0 age: To explore Open Scholarship establish your own Researchgate and Mendeley profiles, and explore how these tools enable active participation within an online reflective practice research community.

“Mendeley is a free reference manager and academic social network. Make your own fully-searchable library in seconds, cite as you write, and read and annotate your PDFs on any device.” (https://www.mendeley.com)

Researchgate is fast becoming the ‘LinkedIn’ of academic researchers: http://researchgate.net

Download the Mendeley App (iOS – an Android App is currently in development), create a bookmark for Researchgate.com, link your Researchgate and Mendeley profiles on your WordPress blog or embed their widgets. Start building a research community by following one another on these online communities.

Reflect on this process on your WordPress blog.
