[Air-L] Risk awareness and aversion in online spaces

Risk awareness and aversion on social media comes up quite often in professionalism literature, especially in medical professionalism. The journal Medical education has a few short, mostly commentary, pieces on this but you can start to see a slight shift from total aversion to a more nuanced risk awareness in the last few years.
T. Fenwick also writes about the risk discourse surrounding social media for professional education (including teacher education/teaching profession).
I would be very interested in this discussion/blogs as I am currently working on my PhD research in Professionalism in Social Media focusing on the nursing and social work professions and the risk/aversion discourse will be key component of the project.

Thanks for sharing this.
It makes me think about how we construct our identity online, in the light
of this online trolling behavior that we sometimes see. I'm also concerned
about these same practices as data and freedoms are under attack as well.
Our research was trying to understand how to empower educators...and as a
result their students as they work/play in these spaces.
Thanks again. I'll grab the book. :)
