Hacking the Academy Project

Hacking the Academy is an interesting project from Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University.

The project began in 2010 and is self-described as an “exercise in re-imagining the edited volume.”  It’s a a collection of blog posts, videos, articles, and other media that discusses how people are challenging the current state of the academy and the ways it teaches, conducts research, performs service, and publishes texts.

Oh, and all the content for the project was crowd-sourced in a week, which I think is pretty cool.

The Educational Technology and Lessens, Classroom, and Curriculum sections looked particularly interesting.
