Twitter Journal Club is an open learning experience on Twitter (originally aggregated around the hashtag #tjc15) in which participants read a previously agreed upon article at a scheduled time, live-tweeting as they go. We are now going into our second calendar year and will be working under the hashtag #tjc16…and now #TJC17. The articles – which must be openly available either through pre-print or open access – are recommended by participants via Google Doc and read in order of recommendation.
Articles tend to be recently published articles from Open Education/Education Technology/Digital Literacy/Networked or Connecting Learning fields. Article authors are invited to join the conversation via direct invitation.
There is no mandate to read the article in advance (although there is also no mandate to prevent participants from reading in advance). The journal club convenes formally for one hour and while conversations can occur for however long as desired, this hour is archived and published via Storify so that participants can read the transcript if they desire
There are no pre-arranged talking points or questions for the discussion. It just IS.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact @googleguacamole.
Cheers and we hope you’ll join us soon!
