Transcribo nota de mi amiga Sheila Yoshikawa sobre su exhibición. Por supuesto hay otras como se puede ver en la fotos. Tremenda experiencia de aprendizaje.

***** Running a journal club in Second Life
Sheila Yoshikawa & Pancha Enzyme

This exhibit aims to provide insight into the practicalities and motivations concerned with running a journal club (JC) in Second Life (SL) on Infolit iSchool island. The JC has a focus on research in Information Literacy and Information Behaviour.

Since September 2010 we have held regular (usually monthly) meetings. A JC typically involves a discussion leader proposing a published research paper which is subsequently critiqued at the JC meeting. JCs are particularly valued in the health sector (see Deenadayalan et al., 2008)  and also used in other disciplines and professions (e.g. Young and Vilelle, 2011).

Traditional journal club meetings take place face to face, but virtual journal clubs have also formed, including ones using Twitter. The authors, who run the SL JC,  plan to investigate the motivations of club participants through a case study, drawing on chatlogs, snapshots, field notes, focus groups, interviews and a questionnaire. So far initial documentation has been gathered and a pilot focus group carried out.

The VWBPE exhibit includes: posters depicting the process of the Infolit iSchool journal club (how papers are chosen, session management  etc.); a presenter containing a series of web-linked panels to the previous JC papers; pictures and machinima of the JC room; and a poster on the process and outcome of the pilot interview.


Interactive elements will include a short survey and a notecard box for sharing experience. An example JC meeting will is scheduled to take place on Friday 16th March at 1pm SL time (8pm UK time). The paper for discussion will be:
Steenbeek, Audrey, Nancy Edgecombe, Joel Durling, Adele LeBlanc, Rosemary Anderson, and Ruth Bainbridge.
