WiseCamp 2014

WiseCamp un-conference sessions will be similar to the successful format run at WebWise 2012, which will allow attendees the opportunity to connect, hatch new ideas and get down to real work with potential collaborators. Based on positive feedback from “WiseCamp” participants in 2012, RRCHNM will incorporate the principles and participant-driven ethos of the THATCamp unconference model into the main WebWise conference. If there is a topic you would like to propose for a 50 minute WiseCamp session and if you would be willing to facilitate it (not necessarily lead, but to get the conversation started), then you can begin that process here. You can vote for a session idea here, and the sessions with the highest numbers of votes will be included in this year's WebWise agenda.

Navigating the Divide: Scholarship and Crowdsourcing

Social Media allows for "user-moderation," as found in Wikipedia, Pinterest, etc. Often, humanities scholars want iron gates between vetted and unvetted content. How can we, in the middle, reap the benefits and power of crowd-sourcing while engaging sound, scholar-approved strategies for the same?
