The two-day ASIST 24-hour Global Conference opens today across all time zones. Five members of the Centre for Social Informatics (CSI) will be presenting their research completed within the Centre in four presentations as part of the the Europe/Africa programme tomorrow (27th April 2022). They are:

- ‘A participative approach to understanding the hidden curriculum: lessons from three virtual information needs workshops’ by Dr David Brazier and Marina Milosheva – abstract available from the Edinburgh Napier repository. (To find out more about this work, including a link to the slides, in the post that Marina added to her own blog yesterday.)

In addition, our CSI colleague Dr Khristin Fabian is co-presenting on open educational resources, drawing on her research conducted at the University of Highlands and Islands.
Our Visiting Professor Dr Brian Detlor of McMaster University (Canada) is one of the conference keynotes. He will deliver the invited closing address for the Americas time zone programme. His presentation is entitled ‘Promoting networking, sharing, and learning for marginalized populations through community-led digital literacy training’.
