Groups

Collaboration is at the heart of HASTAC. HASTAC Groups offer members a space where you can network, organize, plan and report on your work with the help of a suite of tools, including a group calendar, forums, wikis and access to group-only communications. Groups can also act as a showcase, a place where you can highlight your work or projects and get feedback from your Group or from the entire HASTAC membership (Groups can be private and limited to group membership or public and viewable by everyone). By browsing existing Groups you might discover ideas that spur your current thinking to the next level or you might be inspired to go in an altogether new direction.

In addition to official HASTAC program Groups--such as the Digital Media and Learning Competition winners--groups can also be developed and self-organized by any HASTAC member focusing on any idea, topic, or group of people.  HASTAC Groups reflect the varied interests of the HASTAC network, including tools for multimedia archiving, new platforms for social interaction, original gaming environments for teaching and learning, innovative educational programs in information science and information studies, and much more.
