Scholarship as Conversation

Scholarship can be viewed as an ongoing conversation where ideas are created, debated, and weighed against one another over time. Information users and creators converge to discuss meaning, with the effective researcher adding his or her voice to the conversation.

  • Recognize that a given scholarly work may not represent the only, or even the majority, perspective on the issue at hand.
  • Understand that students are entering the middle of the scholarly conversation, not the end.
  • Critically evaluate contributions made by others and see self as a producer as well as consumer, of information.
