Discovering Informal Learning Cultures of Blind Individuals Pursuing STEM Disciplines: A Quantitative Ethnography Using Listserv Archives

Proceedings thumbnail


This study is proposed to discover the collective knowledge sharing patterns and informal learning cultures of blind individuals pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines captured through computer-mediated mailing listservs. Using the world largest online mailing lists for the blind, this research will conduct longitudinal quantitative ethnography for the three STEM-oriented listserv archives between December 2008 and December 2018, to develop a comprehensive understanding of learning experiences voiced by blind individuals.
