Collaborating for Deep Critical Information Behaviour #lilac13

Yesterday I gave a presentation at the LILAC conference #lilac13 in Manchester with some discoveries from the Deep Critical Information Behaviour project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. This was gathering data from students and staff in schools and at university. The principal investigator was my colleague Professor Nigel Ford, and Dr Andrew Madden and Mary Crowder were researchers on the project who, in particular, gathered a large amount of qualitative and quantitative data. I am currently doing more work in siting the research in relation to other relevant research findings and analysing the qualitative data. I have put the presentation on Slideshare and it is embedded below.We will be producing several papers (as there is lots more in the data e.g. a whole strand about Wikipedia use) and also there is likely to be an event in July here in Sheffield, which will include more from the project.
