If you're like me, you spend considerable class time demonstrating to students the importance of digital publication of all sorts, from designing and authoring websites to tweeting, from creating a course Facebook page to submitting changes to an entry on Wikipedia.
Much of my logic for their composing in digital environments rests on the immediacy of such composition and the concrete interaction with an interested audience that it provides communicators, but it also stresses the importance of such communication within intellectual conversations.
Consequently, students in my courses regularly follow and join online conversations that relate to our course topics and the questions they are interested in engaging for their own research projects. One stumbling block that we have faced - over and over and over - is the slow development of citation standards for digital publication. But no longer: Aditi Rao at teachbytes and Camille Gamboa and SAGE to the rescue!
