and we’re going with it! We’ve been invited to run an afternoon ‘unconference’ workshop at the end of the Sloan-C/MERLOT Emerging Technologies for Online Learning conference in Las Vegas on 27 July. Jen will be there in person, and Hamish, Clara and Sian will be collaborating at a distance.
The workshop will be devoted to working with data crowdsourced during the formal part of the conference. Participants – and other attendees – will be asked to listen out for statements or assumptions they hear about being or having a teacher, and about what teaching means in an emerging technology context. Then in the workshop, we’ll use these observations to tease out some broad principles that will form the conference’s own manifesto for teaching with emerging technology.
Needless to say, we think this is going to be a lot of fun, as well as a great chance for stimulating debate and reflection. If you’re coming to the conference, please join us!
