Call for papers:

‘Digital technologies and educational integrity’

A special issue of the online refereed journal IJEI

Edited by Chris Moore and Ruth Walker

University of Wollongong

This special issue of the International Journal for Educational Integrity (IJEI) seeks articles that address the impact of digital technologies on educational integrity. Many different terms have emerged in an attempt to capture the shifting terrain of media use and users in various networked environments: ‘social’, ‘participatory’, ‘user-generated’ or simply ‘new’ media. Common to the online interactive spaces of Web2.0 is the challenge of technologies and practices that are capable of changing the way we teach, learn, and share knowledge. How can we best engage and support students and colleagues coming to terms with the dynamics of these technologies and the development of new literacies?

We are particularly interested in innovative research from scholars in cultural and media studies and/or the scholarship of teaching and learning, and welcome interest from other disciplinary researchers, who might consider a broad range of questions about digital technologies that critically unpack the conversation about academic integrity and go beyond a preoccupation with plagiarism and research ethics. Critical voices of concern, examples of best practice and consideration of the perceived impact of digital technology on institutional boundaries are keenly sought as is research exploring the collaborative approaches to social and participatory media that challenge conceptions about authorial identity and scholarly writing practices. Research examining the development of new literacies that celebrate the appropriation, adaptation and transformation of source material would fit well within the scope of this special issue. We also welcome reviews of relevant books or publications.

Abstracts (max 500 words) due date: 31st March 2010 Full papers (3-6000 words) due date: 1st July 2010 Book reviews (1000 words) due date: 1st September 2010 Special issue release date: December 2010

Please send all enquiries and abstracts to the editors at ruth_walker@uow.edu.au.

, CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE IN THE WORLD. THESE ARTISTS AND THE INFRASTRUCTURES THAT SUPPORT THEM HAVE CREATED A STRONG COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE THAT HAS INFLUENCED BOTH ART MAKING AND ART INSTITUTIONS HERE AND INTERNATIONALLY. LOCATING THE EXACT TIME AND PLACE WHEN THIS BEGAN IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE. HOWEVER, IT IS CLEAR THAT SINCE

THE EARLY 1990s, THE DIGITAL TURN HERALDED BY

THE EMERGENCE OF THE PERSONAL COMPUTER AND THE INTERNET HAS LED TO AN EXPLOSION OF DIVERSITY IN ART PRACTICES. THESE PRACTICES HAVE NOT ONLY CREATED A BREADTH AND DEPTH OF MEDIA ART BUT ALONG THE WAY HAVE TRANSFORMED MANY MORE TRADITIONAL ARTISTIC FORMS FROM DANCE TO PAINTING TO SCULPTURE.

This two-day electronic arts education forum will address issues relevant to the current research/innovation agenda in the arts.

It will be based on an open discussion of current pedagogies and future possibilities of spatial practices in the arts. Teaching practices in the new digital domain and the challenges it presents to the arts will be examined in a forum that brings together electronic arts lecturers from various convergent disciplines along with international speakers.

The forum will look at ongoing strategies for future collaborations between institutions within this area. These collaborations will be to define discipline research strategies that will explore the role of the new digital technology in framing research goals within the arts.

Simultaneously global and intimate in reach, it is now the organising locus of contemporary practices, ideologies and consciousness. This is why the thematic focus of the inaugural Biennale for Electronic
Arts Perth (BEAP) is LOCUS.
The Biennale, through this forum, will examine the locus of electronic media in art schools, and the resulting nexus between art, science, technology and pedagogy. The forum includes key note and specialist speakers, along with generous opportunities for the open discussion of current pedagogies and future possibilities in the arts.
