Interactive Hype Cycle

Really pleased to have stumbled across an interactive representation of Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Education. I’ve only previously known this information to be shown as a diagram to accompany the annual report so it’s really nice to find a fantastic online version developed by the University of Minnesota.

What’s also brilliant with this version is that it additionally incorporates data from the Horizon report. Filtering is really intuitive and gives a great overview of all the data as a whole.

Ethics Resources – Macfarlane

Looking into writing up the rest of my ethics section this weekend, I’ve already made a small start on this section and can draw upon a lot of the resources I’ve been looking over as part of the research process. Checking my Mendeley references and came across a book that I had earmarked to look at but hadn’t gotten round to yet: Researching with integrity : the ethics of academic enquiry by Bruce Macfarlane.

The book covers ethical research and how to avoid unethical situations in your research, with a specific focus on enquiry in academic settings. My study involves academic participants within an institution and although my role is situated within a professional services capacity I still feel there might be much to gain from this resource.
