The Question of Quality: New Forms of Grading, Credentialing, and Peer Review in the Digital World

 

The higher education community is embracing digital technologies and finds itself at a crossroads. As scholarly work, research, and teaching evolve, traditional methods of assessing quality are being challenged through new forms of grading, credentialing, evaluation, and peer review. ITHAKA Sustainable Scholarship 2012 will bring together innovators in this sphere to discuss the impact of these technologies and networks on scholarly practices and notions of quality in the academy.

 

ITHAKA Sustainable Scholarship is an invitation only conference that connects leaders and innovators in publishing, academia, technology, preservation, and information sciences for crossover inspiration and dialog. Sustainable Scholarship is hosted by ITHAKA, a not-for-profit organization that helps the academic community use digital technologies to preserve the scholarly record and to advance research and teaching in sustainable ways. ITHAKA provides three innovative services that benefit the academic community: Ithaka S+R, JSTOR, and Portico.
