Gardner Campbell: Digital Citizenship in a Networked World

Friday, November 5, 2010 - 4:00pm - 5:00pm
Knight Library Browsing Room

The notion that we live in an age of “cognitive surplus” has recently sparked much conversation and controversy. Can computer networks give us the potential to improve the human condition through the wise use of increased free time, expanded brain function, and innovations that harness collective intelligence? If so, how can teaching, learning, and research improve our chances of realizing that potential? What can universities do to prepare students for productive and fulfilling lives as digital citizens?

In the 2010 Philip H. Knight Dean of Libraries Lecture, Gardner Campbell, director of the Academy for Teaching and Learning at Baylor University and a leading authority of the use of technology in higher education, will address these questions in a talk entitled “Digital Citizenship in a Networked World.” The lecture is scheduled for Friday, November 5, at 4 p.m. in Knight Library’s Browsing Room.
