Deborah Lupton on the academic quantified self

Deborah Lupton provides some thoughtful reflections in the post on the academic quantified self. It builds on some recent pieces on the way in which academics and their work are measured and captured in the form of metrics. There are no various ways in which data about academic performance is captured (and sometimes used). Deborah points to the way that academics use such metrics to measure and quantify themselves, and the consequences of this. As the university sector continues to expand its metric or data assemblage, these questions are likely to continue. As will concerns about the way in which these systems of measurement will continue to reshape research and teaching.
