Open Technologies and Resources for the Humanities--and Cooperative Consequences
Fisher, Saul
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, v5 n2 p127-145 2006
The proliferation of open technologies and content in higher education is motivated by broad embrace of a principle of sharing that is consonant with various contemporary economic, pedagogic and policy drivers. At the same time, open technologies and content present the possibility of a departure in the culture of humanities research and teaching. The open frameworks celebrate and facilitate collaborative and cooperative modes of working which are, to a degree, alien to a traditional "individualist" conception of work in the Humanities. But such collectivity and collaboration yield new benefits to individual humanist scholars and so are not a source for concern. (Contains 11 notes.)
