Dear Delegate,
Welcome to the Fourth International Conference on Health, Wellness, and Society.
The conference and its companion journal were created to examine the concept of health as a positive aspect of a global
world and society, while bringing together scholarly, research and practice-based participants. The conference explores the
full range of what health and wellness means while taking the position that the foundation of health and wellness should be a
socially accessible, culturally sensitive public and professional awareness of risks and preventative measures of the most
pressing global health issues of today and tomorrow.
The 2014 Health, Wellness, and Society Conference follows a string of successful meetings over the past few years,
including São Paulo in 2013, Chicago in 2012 and the inaugural conference hosted in Berkeley in 2011. We are very
pleased to announce that next year’s conference will be held in cooperation with Universidad de Alcalá in Madrid, Spain
from 3-4 September 2015.
In addition to the Health, Wellness, and Society Conference, Common Ground also hosts conferences and publishes
journals in other areas of critical intellectual human concern, including aging, food studies, diversity, learning, sustainability,
and the interdisciplinary social sciences, to name several. Our aim is to create new forms of knowledge community, where
people meet in person and also remain connected virtually making the most of the potentials for access using digital media.
We are also committed to creating a more accessible, open and reliable peer review process.
Alongside opportunities for well-known academics, we are creating new publication openings for scholars from developing
countries and for researchers from institutions that are historically teaching-focused. We would like to invite conference
participants to develop publishing proposals for original works or for edited collections of papers drawn from the journal
which address an identified theme. Finally, please join our online conversation by subscribing to our monthly email
newsletter, and subscribe to our Facebook, RSS, or Twitter feeds at http://healthandsociety.com/.
We are also proud to announce the launch of Scholar, created in an association between Common Ground and the
University of Illinois. If the social glue that holds together Facebook is 'friends' and the stickiness of Twitter is having
'followers', then the common bond created in Scholar is 'peers' working together in knowledge producing communities. We
call this a ‘social knowledge’ space. Not only can you join the Health, Wellness, and Society community in Scholar. You can
also create your own knowledge communities and use Scholar as a learning space, with a strong focus on peer-to-peer
dialogue and structured feedback. For more information, visit www.cgscholar.com
This is the longer story of the Health, Wellness, and Society Conference. The shorter story is the phenomenal amount of
work that has been done by our Common Ground colleagues in preparation for this conference. I especially would like to
thank Rachael Arcario, Raquel Jimenez-Palomino, Ana Quintana-Martin, and Kelsey Shannon. We hope you will be able to
join us at next year’s conference, in Madrid, Spain!
We wish you all the best for this conference, and hope it will provide you every opportunity for dialogue with colleagues from
around the corner and around the world.
Yours Sincerely,
Phillip Kalantzis-Cope
Director, Common Ground Publishing
PhD Candidate, The New School for Social Research

ABOUT COMMON GROUND
Our Mission
Common Ground Publishing aims to enable all people to participate in creating collaborative knowledge and to share that
knowledge with the greater world. Through our academic conferences, peer-reviewed journals and books, and innovative
software, we build transformative knowledge communities and provide platforms for meaningful interactions across diverse
media.
Our Message
Heritage knowledge systems are characterized by vertical separations—of discipline, professional association, institution,
and country. Common Ground identifies some of the pivotal ideas and challenges of our time and builds knowledge
communities that cut horizontally across legacy knowledge structures. Sustainability, diversity, learning, the future of the
humanities, the nature of interdisciplinarity, the place of the arts in society, technology’s connections with knowledge, the
changing role of the university—these are deeply important questions of our time which require interdisciplinary thinking,
global conversations, and cross-institutional intellectual collaborations. Common Ground is a meeting place for these
conversations, shared spaces in which differences can meet and safely connect—differences of perspective, experience,
knowledge base, methodology, geographical or cultural origins, and institutional affiliation. We strive to create the places of
intellectual interaction and imagination that our future deserves.
Our Media
Common Ground creates and supports knowledge communities through a number of mechanisms and media. Annual
conferences are held around the world to connect the global (the international delegates) with the local (academics,
practitioners, and community leaders from the host community). Conference sessions include as many ways of speaking as
possible to encourage each and every participant to engage, interact, and contribute. The journals and book series offer
fully-refereed academic outlets for formalized knowledge, developed through innovative approaches to the processes of
submission, peer review, and production. The knowledge community also maintains an online presence—through
presentations on our YouTube channel, monthly email newsletters, as well as Facebook and Twitter feeds. And Common
Ground’s own software, Scholar, offers a path-breaking platform for online discussions and networking, as well as for
creating, reviewing, and disseminating text and multi-media works.

THE HEALTH, WELLNESS, AND SOCIETY KNOWLEDGE COMMUNITY
The Health, Wellness, and Society knowledge community is dedicated to the concept of independent, peer-led groups of
scholars, researchers, and practitioners working together to build bodies of academic knowledge related to topics of critical
importance to society at large. Focusing on the intersection of academia and social impact, the Health, Wellness, and
Society knowledge community brings an interdisciplinary, international perspective to discussions of new developments in
the field, including research, practice, policy, and teaching.

Scope and Concerns
The Physiological and the Psychological
People are empowered through health and wellness to embrace their life’s potential. Health and wellness is about each
individual’s responsibility to themselves to make good choices, and proactive and preventative approaches to health that
support optimum levels of physical, emotional and social functioning – living a nondestructive lifestyle, focusing on
purposefully positive health and a fostering sense of general well-being. The foundation of health and wellness should be a
socially accessible, culturally sensitive public and professional understanding of the most pressing health issues today –
including awareness of risks and preventative measures to address cancer, cardiovascular health, STIs, obesity, nutrition,
diabetes, chemical exposure, accidents and violence, to name just a few of the range of actual and potential health threats.
Wellness is a process of becoming aware of and learning to make healthy choices that lead toward a longer and more
fulfilling life. It is the recognition of the deep interconnections between physiological health and the psychological, physical,
spiritual and social needs that are necessary for us to enjoy higher levels of human functioning.
The Social and the Medical
To some, an improvement in health may simply arise from having an opportunity to eat, or to live in proper housing that isn’t
overcrowded, and to live in a disease free environment that isn’t polluted with the industrial toxic chemicals that may be
driving the economic development upon which they are dependent.
While health and wellness is a booming global industry, we are still falling short in educating world citizens on nutrition and
lifestyle, how to avoid stress on the job, and how to be healthy and avoid disease. A clean and healthy environment, a safe
workplace, access to nutritious unprocessed foods, housing and healthcare are the foundations of a healthy life and wellbeing that is adequate in any and all economic socio-economic circumstances.
Interdisciplinary Health Sciences
None of the large and important questions about the relations between health and society can be tackled from singledisciplinary perspectives. For instance, how can health communications, particularly using the new social media, create a
global health education classroom? How will the worldwide population finally acquire access to vaccines for common
diseases? Will occupational health and safety follow economic and industrial development globally? Will research on aging
give us longer, more productive lives or rather a longer non-productive life expectancy with no joy? Can cultural and
ancestry-based personal medicine help eradicate disease? Medical research along with new drugs and vaccines, safer
more nutritious food and health practices will help to determine the answer, but what will be the social dependencies which
determine success or failure of medical programs and interventions?
Public Health
When global health and wellness is achieved, a paradox comes with success. With health and a safer, less toxic world
comes increased life expectancy, lower infant mortality, larger populations placing additional stress on economies, higher
per capita medical care, housing, food and water production, and immunization programs for possible new pandemics.
Societies as a whole, governments and those involved in interdisciplinary medical research, public safety and community
environmental health and literacy have an obligation to join together to solve the problems of today while at the same time
planning for the problems arising from those successes.
The International Conference on Health, Wellness and Society and the International Journal of Health, Wellness and Society
bring together leading research and thought on the largest and most significant issues of Health, Wellness and Society
today. From these discussions, there emerges a global mission for tomorrow.
Community Membership
Annual membership to the Health, Wellness, and Society community is included in your conference registration. As a

THE INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF HEALTH, WELLNESS, AND SOCIETY AND BOOK SERIES
About Our Publishing Approach
For three decades, Common Ground Publishing has been committed to creating meeting places for people and ideas. With
24 knowledge communities, Common Ground’s vision is to provide platforms that bring together individuals of varied
geographical, institutional, and cultural origins in spaces where renowned academic minds and public thought leaders can
connect across fields of study. Each knowledge community organizes an annual academic conference and is associated
with a peer-reviewed journal (or journal journal), a book imprint, and a social media space centered around Common
Ground’s path-breaking ‘social knowledge’ space, Scholar.
Through its publishing practices, Common Ground aims to foster the highest standards in intellectual excellence. We are
highly critical of the serious deficiencies in today’s academic journal system, including the legacy structures and exclusive
networks that restrict the visibility of emerging scholars and researchers in developing countries, as well as the
unsustainable costs and inefficiencies associated with traditional commercial publishing.
In order to combat these shortcomings, Common Ground has developed an innovative publishing model. Each of Common
Ground’s knowledge communities organizes an annual academic conference. The registration fee that conference
participants pay in order to attend or present at these conferences enables them to submit an article to the associated
journal at no additional cost. Scholars who cannot attend the conference in-person may still participate virtually and submit
to the journal by obtaining a community membership, which also allows them to upload a video presentation to the
community’s YouTube channel. By using a portion of the conference registration and membership fees to underwrite the
costs associated with producing and marketing the journals, Common Ground is able to keep subscription prices low, thus
guaranteeing greater access to our content. All conference participants and community members are also granted a oneyear complimentary electronic subscription to the journal associated with their knowledge community. This subscription
provides access to both the current and past volumes of the journal. Moreover, each article that we publish is available for a
$5 download fee to non-subscribers, and authors have the choice of publishing their paper open access to reach the widest
possible audience and ensure the broadest access possible.
Common Ground’s rigorous peer review process also seeks to address some of the biases inherent in traditional academic
publishing models. Our pool of reviewers draws on authors who have recently submitted to the journal, as well as volunteer
reviewers whose CVs and academic experience have been evaluated by Common Ground’s editorial team. Reviewers are
assigned to articles based on their academic interests and expertise. By enlisting volunteers and other prospective authors
as peer reviewers, Common Ground avoids the drawbacks of relying on a single editor’s professional network, which can
often create a small group of gatekeepers who get to decide who and what gets published. Instead, Common Ground
harnesses the enthusiasm of its conference delegates and prospective journal authors to assess submissions using a
criterion-referenced evaluation system that is at once more democratic and more intellectually rigorous than other models.
Common Ground also recognizes the important work of peer reviewers by acknowledging them as Associate Editors of the
volumes to which they contribute.
For over ten years, Common Ground has been building web-based publishing and social knowledge software where people
can work closely to collaborate, create knowledge, and learn. The third and most recent iteration of this project is the
innovative social knowledge environment, Scholar. Through the creation of this software, Common Ground has sought to
tackle what it sees as changing technological, economic, distributional, geographic, interdisciplinary and social relations to
knowledge. For more information about this change and what it means for academic publishing, refer to The Future of the
Academic Journal, edited by Bill Cope and Angus Phillips (Elsevier 2009).
We hope that you will join us in creating dialogues between different perspectives, experiences, knowledge bases, and
methodologies through interactions at the conference, conversations online, and as fully realized, peer-reviewed journal
articles and books.

“Social Justice and Health Equality: Urban Aboriginal Women’s Action for Health Reform”
Abstract
Urban Aboriginal women face ongoing racist and discriminatory practices within the Canadian heath care system.
This community-based, Indigenous-led study used locally developed Indigenous methodology and cultural
traditions such as Talking Circles to provide culturally safe spaces for urban Aboriginal women living in western
Canada to share their health care experience and visions for health care reforms with health care providers,
educators, and policy makers. The women identified social exclusion based on physical appearance, race, gender,
and being “marked” as having an impact on all aspects of life including education, health, and human and
Aboriginal rights. As co-researchers, their collective vision strategies for non-racist, non-discriminatory health care
delivery included interdisciplinary curriculum development and delivery, academic forums, and education of health
professionals and students, some of which they are currently involved in. Their vision and recommendations for
social justice reform are offered to assist those interested in working towards a better future for Indigenous people.

JOURNAL SUBSCRIPTIONS, OPEN ACCESS, ADDITIONAL SERVICES
Institutional Subscriptions
Common Ground offers print and electronic subscriptions to all of its journals. Subscriptions are available to The
International Journal of Health, Wellness, and Society. Common Ground also offers subscriptions to themed journal
collections and custom suites based on a given institution’s unique content needs. Subscription prices are based on a
tiered scale that corresponds to the full-time enrollment (FTE) of the subscribing institution. You may download the Library
Recommendation form from our website to recommend that your institution subscribe to The International Journal of Health,
Wellness, and Society.
Personal Subscriptions
As part of their conference registration, all conference participants have a one-year online subscription to The International
Journal of Health, Wellness, and Society. This complimentary personal subscription grants access to both the current
volume of the journal as well as the entire backlist. The period of complimentary access begins at the time of registration
and ends one year after the close of the conference. After that time, delegates may purchase a personal subscription. To
view articles, go to http://ijw.cgpublisher.com/. Select the “Login” option and provide a CGPublisher username and
password. Then, select an article and download the PDF. For lost or forgotten login details, select “forgot your login” to
request a new password.
For more information, please visit:

[email protected]
Hybrid Open Access
The International Journal of Health, Wellness, and Society is Hybrid Open Access. Hybrid Open Access is an option
increasingly offered by both university presses and well-known commercial publishers.
Hybrid Open Access means that some articles are available only to subscribers, while others are made available at no
charge to anyone searching the web. Authors pay an additional fee for the open access option. They may do this because
open access is a requirement of their research funding agency. Or they may do it so that non-subscribers can access their
article for free.
Common Ground’s open access charge is $250 per article, a very reasonable price compared to our hybrid open access
competitors and purely open access journals that are resourced with an author publication fee. Electronic papers are
normally only available through individual or institutional subscriptions or for purchase at $5 per article. However, if you
choose to make your article Open Access, this means that anyone on the web may download it for free.
There are still considerable benefits for paying subscribers, because they can access all articles in the journal, from both
current and past volumes, without any restrictions. But making your paper available at no charge increases its visibility,
accessibility, potential readership, and citation counts. Open access articles also generate higher citation counts.
For more information or to make your article Open Access, please contact us at [email protected]
Institutional Open Access
Common Ground is proud to announce an exciting new model of scholarly publishing called Institutional Open Access.
Institutional Open Access allows faculty and graduate students to submit articles to Common Ground journals for
unrestricted open access publication. These articles will be freely and publicly available to the whole world through our
hybrid open access infrastructure. With Institutional Open Access, instead of the author paying a per-article open access
fee, institutions pay a set annual fee that entitles their students and faculty to publish a given number of open access articles
each year.
The rights to the articles remain with the subscribing institution. Both the author and the institution can also share the final
typeset version of the article in any place they wish, including institutional repositories, personal websites, and privately or
publicly accessible course materials. We support the highest Sherpa/Romeo access level—Green.

THE HEALTH, WELLNESS, AND SOCIETY BOOK IMPRINT
Common Ground is setting new standards of rigorous academic knowledge creation and scholarly publication. Unlike other
publishers, we’re not interested in the size of potential markets or competition from other books. We’re only interested in the
intellectual quality of the work. If your book is a brilliant contribution to a specialist area of knowledge that only serves a small
intellectual community, we still want to publish it. If it is expansive and has a broad appeal, we want to publish it too, but
only if it is of the highest intellectual quality.
We welcome proposals or completed manuscript submissions of:
•
•
•
•
Individually and jointly authored books
Edited collections addressing a clear, intellectually challenging theme
Collections of articles published in our journals
Out-of-copyright books, including important books that have gone out of print and classics with new introductions

Call for Book Reviewers
Common Ground Publishing is seeking distinguished peer reviewers to evaluate book manuscripts submitted to The Health,
Wellness, and Society Book Imprint.
As part of our commitment to intellectual excellence and a rigorous review process, Common Ground sends book
manuscripts that have received initial editorial approval to peer reviewers to further evaluate and provide constructive
feedback. The comments and guidance that these reviewers supply is invaluable to our authors and an essential part of the
publication process.
Common Ground recognizes the important role of reviewers by acknowledging book reviewers as members of the Health,
Wellness, and Society Book Imprint Editorial Review Board for a period of at least one year. The list of members of the
Editorial Review Board will be posted on our website.

ACERCA DE NUESTRO ENFOQUE EDITORIAL
Durante 29 años, Common Ground Publishing se ha comprometido con la creación de lugares de encuentro de personas e
ideas. Con 11 comunidades de conocimiento en español y portugués y 24 comunidades en inglés, la visión de Common
Ground es proveer plataformas que reúnan a personas de diversos orígenes geográficos, institucionales y culturales en
espacios donde académicos y otros profesionales puedan conectar por igual a través de distintos campos interdisciplinares
de estudio. Cada comunidad de conocimiento realiza un congreso académico anual alrededor del mundo y está asociada a
una Revista revisada por pares (o a una colección de Revistas), una colección de Libros y un serie de redes sociales, en
torno a un nuevo “espacio social de conocimiento” realmente disruptivo diseñado y desarrollado por Common Ground:
Scholar (http://cgscholar.com/).
A través de sus servicios editoriales, Common Ground tiene como objetivo fomentar los más altos estándares de excelencia
intelectual. Somos muy críticos con las graves deficiencias que existen en el actual sistema de publicaciones académica,
incluyendo las estructuras existentes y las redes exclusivas que restringen la visibilidad de los académicos e investigadores
emergentes en los países en desarrollo, así como los costes e ineficiencias insostenibles asociados con la edición comercial
tradicional.
Para combatir estas deficiencias, Common Ground ha desarrollado un modelo de publicación innovador. Cada una de las
comunidades de conocimiento de Common Ground organiza un congreso académico anual. La cuota de inscripción que
pagan los participantes del congreso por asistir y presentar en estos congresos, les permite enviar un artículo a la revista (o
colección de revistas) asociada sin coste adicional. Así, los autores pueden realizar una presentación en un congreso
científico de su área de investigación, incorporar las críticas constructivas que reciben en respuesta a su presentación y, a
continuación, enviar un artículo sólido para su revisión por pares, sin que el autor tenga que pagar una tasa adicional. Los
académicos que no puedan asistir al congreso en persona, pueden participar de forma virtual, opción que les permite
enviar un artículo a la revista. Usando una parte de la cuota de inscripción para financiar los costes asociados a la
producción y comercialización de las revistas, Common Ground es capaz de mantener unos precios de suscripción bajos,
facilitando así el acceso a todos nuestros contenidos. Todos los participantes del congreso, tanto presenciales como
virtuales, pueden subir sus presentaciones al canal de YouTube de Common Ground, además de tener una suscripción
electrónica gratuita a la revista por un periodo de un año. Esta suscripción permite el acceso a todos los números,
presentes y pasados, de la revista en español/portugués y a la revista (o colección de revistas) en inglés. Además, cada
artículo que publicamos está disponible de forma individual con una tarifa de descarga de $3 para los no abonados, y los
autores disponen de la opción de publicar su artículo en acceso abierto para llegar así a una mayor audiencia y garantizar la
difusión más amplia posible.
El riguroso proceso de revisión de Common Ground trata también de abordar algunos de los sesgos inherentes a los
tradicionales modelos de editoriales académicas. El conjunto de evaluadores está compuesto de autores que han
presentado recientemente artículos a la revista, así como de revisores voluntarios cuyos currículos y experiencia académica
han sido evaluados por el equipo editorial de Common Ground. Los artículos son asignados a revisores en base en sus
intereses académicos y experiencia. Al tener voluntarios y a otros autores como posibles revisores, Common Ground evita
los inconvenientes de depender de la red profesional de un solo editor, que con más frecuencia de la deseable conlleva la
creación de grupos de arbitraje cerrado que deciden qué y quién publica. En cambio, Common Ground aprovecha el
excelente talante de los participantes del congreso y de los autores de las revistas para evaluar los trabajos, utilizando un
sistema de evaluación basado en criterios más democráticos e intelectualmente más rigurosos que otros modelos
tradicionales. Common Ground también reconoce la importante labor de los revisores, nombrándoles Editores Asociados
de los volúmenes en los que contribuyen.
A través de la creación de un software asombrosamente innovador, Common Ground también ha comenzado a hacer
frente a lo que considera como un cambio en las relaciones tecnológicas, económicas, geográficas, interdisciplinarias,
sociales y de distribución y difusión del conocimiento. Desde hace más de diez años hemos estado construyendo una
editorial muy mediada por las tecnologías web y las nueves redes sociales, donde la gente pueda trabajar en estrecha
colaboración para aprender, crear y compartir conocimiento. La tercera y última iteración de este proyecto es un entorno
social de conocimiento pionero llamado Scholar (http://cgscholar.com/). Esta plataforma informática posee un lugar donde
los académicos pueden conectarse en red y dar visibilidad a sus investigaciones a través de una librería personal.
Esperamos que se unan a nosotros en la creación de diálogos entre diferentes perspectivas, experiencias, áreas de
conocimiento y metodologías a través de las interacciones en el seno del congreso, las conversaciones online, los artículos
para la revista o la colección de libros (ambas revisadas por pares).

Health Conference, 2014
REVISTA INTERNACIONAL DE HUMANIDADES MÉDICAS
La Revista Internacional de Humanidades Médicas ofrece un espacio para el diálogo y la publicación de nuevos
conocimientos desarrollados sobre tradiciones pasadas en el seno de las humanidades médicas, al tiempo que establecen
un programa renovado para el futuro. Las humanidades médicas son un ámbito de aprendizaje, reflexión y acción, y un
lugar de diálogo entre variadas epistemologías, perspectivas y áreas de conocimiento en la frontera de las Humanidades,
las Ciencias Sociales y la Medicina. Es en estos turbulentos cruces del saber humano donde las humanidades podrían ser
capaces de aliviar los modernos sistemas de conocimientos médicos de su (no poco frecuente) estrechez de miras.
Los artículos en la Revista Internacional de Humanidades Médicas abarcan un terreno amplio, desde lo general y
especulativo hasta lo particular y empírico. No obstante, su preocupación principal es redefinir nuestro entendimiento de la
medicina bajo una nueva perspectiva basada en lo humano y lo social, y mostrar diversas prácticas disciplinarias dentro de
las humanidades médicas. Esta revista pretende reabrir el debate acerca de las diversoas facetas de la medicina tanto por
razones prácticas como teóricas.
La Revista es relevante para los académicos e investigadores provenientes de un amplio espectro de disciplinas dentro de
las humanidades médicas, para los profesores universitarios y los educadores, así como para todos los profesionales
relacionados de un modo u otro con las industrias biomédicas y farmaceuticas, y para cualquier persona con interés e
inquietud por las relaciones entre las humanidades, las ciencias sociales y la medicina.

Acceso Abierto
Las revistas de Common Ground ofrecen un modelo de acceso abierto híbrido a los autores de los artículos. Se trata de un
nuevo modelo, en pleno auge en el seno del sector de las publicaciones académicas. Este servicio es ofrecido cada vez
más por las editoriales universitarias y por editoriales comerciales de prestigio.
Acceso Abierto Híbrido significa que algunos artículos están disponibles sólo para suscriptores, mientras que otros están
disponibles gratuitamente para cualquier persona que busca en la web. Los autores que estén interesados en tener su
artículo en acceso abierto, es decir accesible de forma gratuita en la web, deben abonar una cantidad adicional si desean
hacer efectiva esta interesante opción. Cada vez más agencias de financiación, tanto gubernamentales como fundaciones
públicas y privadas, están exigiendo que los artículos de sus investigadores sean publicados en acceso abierto. A cambio,
dichas agencias ofrecen financiación adicional a dichos autores para poder abonar la cantidad estipulada por la editorial.
Infórmese en su agencia de financiación, en su centro de investigación o en su universidad para solicitar una ayuda por este
concepto.
Los beneficios de convertir su artículo en acceso abierto son considerables y empíricamente comprobados. Innumerables
trabajos de investigación han probado que un artículo en acceso abierto aumenta no sólo su visibilidad y su accesibilidad y
por tanto, también el número de lectores potenciales, sino que además puede aumentar el número de citas recibidas en
más de un 250%
Para más información, por favor visite la página: http://humanidadesmedicas.com/publicaciones/revista/acceso-abierto
Servicios Editoriales
Nos complace en ofrecer servicios editoriales para aquellos autores que quieran tener una revisión/edición profesional de su
trabajo. Los autores pueden solicitar estos servicios editoriales antes de remitir su artículo o después del proceso de
revisión por pares. En algunos casos los evaluadores pueden recomendar que un artículo sea corregido/editado como
condición para su publicación. Los servicios descritos a continuación pueden servir de ayuda a los autores en la fase de

Health Conference, 2014
THE HEALTH, WELLNESS, AND SOCIETY CONFERENCE
Conference Principles and Features
The structure of the conference is based on four core principles that pervade all aspects of the knowledge community:
International
This conference travels around the world to provide opportunities for delegates to see and experience different countries
and locations. But more importantly, the Health, Wellness, and Society Conference offers a tangible and meaningful
opportunity to engage with scholars from a diversity of cultures and perspectives. This year, delegates from over 30
countries are in attendance, offering a unique and unparalleled opportunity to engage directly with colleagues from all
corners of the globe.
Interdisciplinary
Unlike association conferences attended by delegates with similar backgrounds and specialties, this conference brings
together researchers, practitioners, and scholars from a wide range of disciplines who have a shared interest in the themes
and concerns of this community. As a result, topics are broached from a variety of perspectives, interdisciplinary methods
are applauded, and mutual respect and collaboration are encouraged.
Inclusive
Anyone whose scholarly work is sound and relevant is welcome to participate in this community and conference, regardless
of discipline, culture, institution, or career path. Whether an emeritus professor, graduate student, researcher, teacher,
policymaker, practitioner, or administrator, your work and your voice can contribute to the collective body of knowledge that
is created and shared by this community.
Interactive
To take full advantage of the rich diversity of cultures, backgrounds, and perspectives represented at the conference, there
must be ample opportunities to speak, listen, engage, and interact. A variety of session formats, from more to less
structured, are offered throughout the conference to provide these opportunities.
Session Descriptions
Plenary Sessions
Plenary speakers, chosen from among the world’s leading thinkers, offer formal presentations on topics of broad interest to
the community and conference delegation. One or more speakers are scheduled into a plenary session, most often the first
session of the day. As a general rule, there are no questions or discussion during these sessions. Instead, plenary speakers
answer questions and participate in informal, extended discussions during their Garden Sessions.
Garden Sessions
Garden Sessions are informal, unstructured sessions that allow delegates a chance to meet plenary speakers and talk with
them at length about the issues arising from their presentation. When the venue and weather allow, we try to arrange for a
circle of chairs to be placed outdoors.
Talking Circles
Held on the first day of the conference, Talking Circles offer an early opportunity to meet other delegates with similar
interests and concerns. Delegates self-select into groups based on broad thematic areas and then engage in extended
discussion about the issues and concerns they feel are of utmost importance to that segment of the community. Questions
like “Who are we?”, ”What is our common ground?”, “What are the current challenges facing society in this area?”, “What
challenges do we face in constructing knowledge and effecting meaningful change in this area?” may guide the
conversation. When possible, a second Talking Circle is held on the final day of the conference, for the original group to
reconvene and discuss changes in their perspectives and understandings as a result of the conference experience. Reports
from the Talking Circles provide a framework for the delegates’ final discussions during the Closing Session.
Health Conference, 2014
21
Paper Presentations
Paper presentations are grouped by general themes or topics into sessions comprised of three or four presentations
followed by group discussion. Each presenter in the session makes a formal twenty-minute presentation of their work; Q&A
and group discussion follow after all have presented. Session Chairs introduce the speakers, keep time on the
presentations, and facilitate the discussion. Each presenter's formal, written paper will be available to participants if
accepted to the journal.
Colloquium
Colloquium sessions are organized by a group of colleagues who wish to present various dimensions of a project or
perspectives on an issue. Four or five short formal presentations are followed by commentary and/or group discussion. A
single article or multiple articles may be submitted to the journal based on the content of a colloquium session.
Workshop/Interactive Session
Workshop sessions involve extensive interaction between presenters and participants around an idea or hands-on
experience of a practice. These sessions may also take the form of a crafted panel, staged conversation, dialogue or debate
– all involving substantial interaction with the audience. A single article (jointly authored, if appropriate) may be submitted to
the journal based on a workshop session.
Focused Discussion Session
For work that is best discussed or debated, rather than reported on through a formal presentation, these sessions provide a
forum for an extended “roundtable” conversation between an author and a small group of interested colleagues. Several
such discussions occur simultaneously in a specified area, with each author’s table designated by a number corresponding
to the title and topic listed in the program schedule. Summaries of the author’s key ideas, or points of discussion, are used
to stimulate and guide the discourse. A single article, based on the scholarly work and informed by the focused discussion
as appropriate, may be submitted to the journal.
Poster Sessions
Poster sessions present preliminary results of works in progress or projects that lend themselves to visual displays and
representations. These sessions allow for engagement in informal discussions about the work with interested delegates
throughout the session.
Article Submission
If unable to attend the conference in person, an author may choose to submit a virtual presentation. Opportunities and
formats vary but may be a presentation through our YouTube channel or an online discussion with interested delegates at
the conference. Abstracts of these presentations are included in the online “session descriptions,” and an article may be
submitted to the journal for peer review and possible publication, according to the same standards and criteria as all other
journal submissions.

A Digital Learning Platform
Use Scholar to Support Your Teaching
Health Conference, 2014
71
Scholar is a social knowledge platform that transforms the patterns of interaction in learning by putting students first,
positioning them as knowledge producers instead of passive knowledge consumers. Scholar provides scaffolding to
encourage making and sharing knowledge drawing from multiple sources rather than memorizing knowledge that has been
presented to them.
Scholar also answers one of the most fundamental questions students and instructors have of their performance, "How am
I doing?" Typical modes of assessment often answer this question either too late to matter or in a way that is not clear or
comprehensive enough to meaningfully contribute to better performance.
A collaborative research and development project between Common Ground and the College of Education at the University
of Illinois, Scholar contains a knowledge community space, a multimedia web writing space, a formative assessment
environment that facilitates peer review, and a dashboard with aggregated machine and human formative and summative
writing assessment data.
The following Scholar features are only available to Common Ground Knowledge Community members as part of their
membership. Please email us at [email protected] if you would like the complimentary educator account that comes
with participation in a Common Ground conference.
•
•
•
•
Create projects for groups of students, involving draft, peer review, revision and publication.
Publish student works to each student’s personal portfolio space, accessible through the web for class discussion.
Create and distribute surveys.
Evaluate student work using a variety of measures in the assessment dashboard.
Scholar is a generation beyond learning management systems. It is what we term a Digital Learning Platform—it transforms
learning by engaging students in powerfully horizontal ‘social knowledge’ relationships.
