Understanding Digital Student Development (Presentation at @NASPA_R1)

Thinking About - Banksy.001

I have the pleasure of presenting at the NASPA Region I Annual conference today.  The topic?  How might we re-envision Student Development theory for the digital age.  Below you will find an abbreviated version of my presentation.

Some additional resources that might be of interest include:

  • My past posts related to digital identity and identity development in digital/social media contexts.
  • My dissertation research proposal on college students, social media, and the self.
  • An animated video on Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Theory reimagined for social media.
  • A video of my ACPA 2014 PechaKucha title “Digital Identity Isn’t About Identity at All”

  2. Reblogged this on sarealtalk and commented:
    I find this so relevant so what I’m studying and learning right now. We need to dive into researching this!

  3. We of course agree on Bronfenbrenner. I’m less convinced that we should just repackage older student development theory. I think we need a whole new way of talking about this topic of “student development” in the digital age. I’m glad many of us are working through these complex issues.

    • I agree, Paul. The portion of my presentation that’s not included here is the complete reconceptualization. It was too complex to represent here and also incomplete… since it’s my ongoing research. 😉
