Abstract:This poster describes an educational research project we call “Community Informatics Studio,” which uses studio-based learning (SBL) to support enculturation into the field of community informatics. The SBL approach is rooted in the apprenticeship model of learning in which students study with master designers or artists to learn their craft and is closely related to John Dewey's inquiry-based learning. The poster reports on research from our Community Informatics Studio course, which uses experiential learning as a model of information scholarship in action. We highlight the guiding theoretical frameworks, research questions, methodological approaches, findings, and recommendations. The goal of our poster is to respond to this year’s iConference theme by presenting our research question: “How can the Community Informatics Studio be understood as an innovative educational model of information scholarship in action?”
