Welcome to the theoryblog. I’m Bonnie Stewart….an educator, learner, and social media researcher fascinated by who we are when we’re online.
I’ve spent the past 15 years exploring the intersections of knowledge and technology, both in professional contexts and in academia. I hold a Ph.D in Educational Studies from the University of Prince Edward Island’s Faculty of Education. My dissertation (2015) took up scholarship in a time of knowledge abundance, and how influence is cultivated in academic Twitter.
Digital identities, networked reputations, and the implications of social media for institutions: these are what I do. You can find my full portfolio at bonstewart.com, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or join me thinking out loud on twitter as @bonstewart.
