- I think Andrew's work on search is tremendously important, in partbecause searching for information is such a taken-for-granted part ofhow we live our lives, and the mechanisms that facilitate thosesearches are largely invisible.
- Maura and Mariana do deeply descriptive work on the lives of CUNYstudents and how the contexts they find themselves in shape theirscholarly practices in (to some educators and academics) unexpectedways.
- Lesley's work with post-graduate students at the Institute of Educationat the University of London shares many methods with myself, Andrew,Maura and Mariana, and the images and descriptions she shared ofstudent habits, cognitive maps, and workspaces were utterly familiar.
- Lori's work on IT and University strategic plans, and in particular thetext mining of these plans en masse to reveal the disconnect betweeninstitutional priorities and the everyday lives (and priorities) of thepeople within those institutions was striking and a very importantpiece of big-picture context for our panel.
