onthehorizonThe CUNY Academic Commons: fostering faculty use of the social web

February, 2011 – Matt Gold and George Otte

The authors published a case study in the journal On the Horizon, chronicling the steps they took to develop and implement the Commons.

open and participatory forms of academic social spaces within the CUNY system encourage peer-to-peer learning among faculty members and experimentation with socialmedia in the classroom. As a generative platform for engaging social media, the CUNY Academic Commons is making the professoriate of the largest urban public university system in the world more visible to itself and to a wider public.
