An increasing number of instructors are using publishing as a pedagogical tool: by encouraging students to make their work public and usable by others (from blog posts and Wikipedia entries to apps and open-source tools), they introduce opportunities for acquiring new literacies -- publishing, visual, digital. At the same time, the public nature of these works raises important questions about student authorship, copyright, privacy, and responsibility. How should new modes of writing and publishing change what students do and learn in the classroom? How can we mitigate the risks, benefit from the possibilities, and learn from emerging communication methods ways to create positive change in the scholarly publishing system?


We will explore these and other questions with our panelists, who bring different perspectives and experiences on how publishing tools as well as the act of creating public-facing works in the classroom change our approach to teaching.
