Michael Stephens

Assistant Professor
San Jose State University & Tame the Web

Dr. Michael Stephens is Assistant Professor in the School of Information at San Jose State University and designs and conducts the online postgraduate course, The Hyperlinked Library, focused on the powerful emerging trends, tools and processes driving change in library and information communities. He was the 2009 CAVAL Visiting Scholar in Australia, consulted for US Embassies in Germany, Switzerland, and Turkey, and presented to both national and international audiences about emerging technologies, innovation, and libraries. Since 2010, Dr. Stephens has written the monthly column “Office Hours” for Library Journal exploring the issues, ideas, and emerging trends in library and information science education. For more than ten years, his research has focused on the use of emerging technologies in libraries and technology learning programs, and he is inspired by library structures and virtual spaces that support  users, participation, creating content, and encouraging the heart. Using key insights from his research and involvement with global seminars on participatory culture, he developed the Fall 2014 Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), the Hyperlinked Library,  with SJSU School of Information Lecturer Kyle Jones. From 2005 to the present, Dr. Stephens has delivered keynotes, papers, and workshops throughout the US and internationally on topics related to creative and open uses of technology to support and drive library services and learning. Dr. Stephens also conducts presentations and trainings on large-scale professional development opportunities in collaborative online environments. To review Dr. Stephen’s archive of work and ongoing efforts to promote transformational professional engagement, visit his Tame the Web website and blog http://tametheweb.com.
