DHShare: Facilitating Student Research Differently in the Digital Age

The author argues that shifts in models of research, alongside vast changes in information accessibility, warrant reconsiderations about how we teach students to do research. Several scholars have discussed how technology and the internet impact the way students think on fundamental levels. The author presents a way to facilitate student research differently amidst these changes through DHShare, a scholarly and pedagogical resource for sharing, organizing, and searching link sources about copyright, and for discussing how these sources can be used in the classroom. The author will introduce the project, present the design process for building DHShare, and explore larger implications in relation to research. [link]
