#MOSOMELT 2019 Week6: Developing Open Scholarship

This week we explore updating the concept of the Scholarship Of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) for the post web 2.0 age: You are encouraged to establish ResearchgateMendeley, Google Scholar, and ORCID profiles, becoming active participants within online reflective practice research communities. Sharing your innovations in teaching and learning for peer review and feedback is a great way to reflect upon your teaching practice in a much deeper level and also learn from others.

  • “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
  • ORCID is the Open Researcher and Contributor ID – a way of consolidating your research profiles such as SCOPUSID (Elsevier) and ResearcherID (Web Of Science). For example, my ORCID profile is http://orcid.org/0000-0002-0192-6118. While ORCID is relatively new, many open journal systems now provide an author profile field for their ORCID.
  • Download the Mendeley App (iOS and Android), 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.

Combining Open Scholarship with sharing of your research via Social Media provides an alternative way of measuring the impact of your research (via ALTMETRICs) while also enhancingtraditional research impact measures (increasing downloads/reads/citation counts). Most institutional research database systems now provide links to research article impact factors via both traditional databases (e.g. SCOPUS & Web Of Science) and Altmetrics. Therefore there is a compelling case for researchers to engage with social media to share their research via Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, etc…

#Mosomelt 2019 Week 4: Building your eportfolio

This week we invite you to turn your WordPress Blog into an eportfolio: making it into a hub for your mobile social media platforms of choice.

To do this you customise your WordPress site in the ‘dashboard’ or “My Sites” section when logged into WordPress. For example use the WordPress Links section to add links then display them via the Wordpress Links Widget for linking your online activity https://wordpress.com/customize/:

Some articles re educational blogging and eportfolios that you may find interesting for further reading:
