Major Project Summary

Well, it’s been a long road but I am really happy with my project: Digital Citizenship for Instructors Resource.

I think it’s an important thing that we not assume digital citizenship stop with K-12 students, teachers, and parents. The digital world is having a big impact on higher education and being informed can make a huge difference. Check out my Cautionary Tales page if you want to see some examples.

I sent my resource to a couple friends of mine who are both instructors, one newly finished her PhD, the other in the midst of it, to get some feedback from a target audience. They both offered me some great suggestions but overall, they felt like it gave them a great place to start so I’m hoping that others will find it useful too.

In all my searching, I was pretty astounded that a resource like this did not seem to exist. There were bits and pieces here and there, mostly single blog posts, so I am hoping that my resource (which, like all my materials, is CC BY-NC-SA.

I’ve been collecting bits and pieces of this in my head for a while since I tend to read a lot of articles about this kind of thing so it has been nice to pull it all together into one place but add framing information, illustrations, suggestions. It’s something that I think could be adapted for K-12 teachers with some different cautionary tales and some tweaks to professional identity. Probably less need for the research identity but not necessarily.

All in all, it’s been a long haul but I’m happy with it and I hope others find it to be useful!
