Language in Which You Will Present:
Anyone interested in designing research activities or forming collaborations in a distributed context.
Short Session Description (one line):
Reports on patterns of synchronous and asynchronous participation in a virtual collaboratory.
Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
This case study reports on patterns of participation in a virtual collaboratory organized around goals associated with the involvement of graduate students in research and writing projects. Traditionally, distance learning classrooms have been devoted to teaching content matter (in a virtual context) yet this case reports on the use of synchronous learning contexts to support research and professionalization on the part of graduate students in Library & Information Science. Focus is placed on discussing virtual collaboratories as a form of learning design which modifies the use of existing (synchronous) distance learning classrooms.
