    Online Conferencing in the Arts and Humanities

    We hear reports of 'flagship' uses of online conferencing in our courses -
    offering opportunities for reflection and discussion among students, for
    computer supported co-operative or collaborative learning.

    *Is online conferencing particularly valuable in the Arts and Humanities?
    What are the benefits? And are they worth the time invested by teachers and

    *How best can a knowledge community be created online? What are the
    practical and ethical problems of joint creation and 'ownership' of
    knowledge? How best can students use such knowledge in their thinking,
    writing and creative work?

    *Or, rather, are uses of online discussion, collaboration and web resources
    just a lot of hype? - a 21st century way of accessing 'photocopied' lecture
    notes and 'model answers'?

    Please think about presenting a paper that addresses these or other,
    related, issues. Or come along to hear your colleagues' views and
    experiences, and join in the debate.
