The New Peer Review: Digital Scholarship in a World of Traditional Pubs

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Scholarly work has increasingly gained importance in Extension programming. It has become the driving force for many Extension professionals when they set programming priorities. However, the inclusion of technology has left Cooperative Extension in a conundrum. How should we now define “scholarship” when technology is involved? How can we adapt current peer review, evaluation, and reporting processes to reflect and encourage innovative outreach and engagement programming by Extension professionals?

Session participants will hear examples of digital scholarship and how Extension organizations are testing adapted evaluation and reporting procedures to accommodate technology use. Come to the session prepared to share how your organization is addressing digital scholarship, as well as discuss nationwide opportunities for improvement and collaboration.

Session Objectives:

1. To define and explain digital scholarship vs traditional scholarship.
2. To give examples of adapted peer review, evaluation, and reporting processes currently in use.
3. To begin a discussion on the value placed on traditional publications vs. digitally created content.
4. To create partnerships and collaboration between Extension organizations that will provide the opportunity to determine recommendations for evaluation, reporting, and peer review of digitally created content.

This session will be led by guiding members of the eXtension Educational Technology Learning Network. A series on digital scholarship authored by Dr. Eric Stafne from Mississippi State is posted to the EdTechLN blog: extedtechs.org/digitalscholarship
