Titles of classic and contemporary readings were flying around the room in the areas of LIS, FLIS, sociology, education, philosophy, prison experiences, among others. If you made a suggestion or caught the details of a suggestion, please share it by adding it to our growing list of resources or our Zotero group bibliography.
The most recent addition was shared by Sue Searing:
In our group (#6) we discussed storytelling, and I recommended this research done at U of Illinois GSLIS on distance education students:
Catch a cyber by the tale : online orality and the lore of a distributed learning community / Betsy Hearne & Anna Nielsen. In _ Learning, culture, and community in online education : research and practice_ / Caroline Haythornthwaite & Michelle M. Kazmer, editors, pp. 59-88. NY: P. Lang, 2004.
The research uncovered the folklore of the earliest distance ed cohorts at GSLIS, including stories about juggling school and the rest of life. These are mostly women’s stories, of course.
