W5 - Collaborative Writing Online: On the Net Without a Net (CANCELLED)

9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Mike Ridley, Librarian & Instructor, University of Guelph

During the Fall of 2012, Ridley authored an online, participatory “book-like-thing” (www.BeyondLiteracy.com). It was an experiment in writing, publishing, distributed authorship, and pedagogy. It was like working without a net. Terrifying. Exciting. This workshop explores collaborative writing/creating/curating in this new hyperconnected context and highlights the many opportunities for using this technique in any community. Ridley shares what worked, what didn’t, what he would do differently, and what you will do when you try this yourself. Part demo, part discussion, and part problem-solving, the workshop investigates the intersection of scholarly communication and public interaction. Not to be missed!
