ITSRG sponsored a month-long writing workshop involving faculty, graduate student and community fellows aimed at sharing outcomes of our programs, projects and research activites. Fellows have been writing about issues such as digital inclusion, literacy and place, cyber safety for kids, web 2.0 and communities, fair information practices, BITS Program Lessons Learned and e-health.
Write Now in May involved a series of weekly meetings among the writers, developing shared tools for collaborating around specific journal article manuscripts, blog posts, presentations, and responses to abstracts and calls for papers.
We were able to draft 10 manuscripts, create tools for sharing literature reviews and searches, and increase the numbers of fellows with writing projects underway. We are especially pleased that three graduate fellows participated in the event.
We want to extend a special thank you to all of the fellows who participated in the event. One outcome from Write Now in May is that we have created a new ITSRG Working Papers series. You can preview ITSRG Working Papers here. Originally posted 6/4/08.
