“The Hyperlinked Campus” at Dominican University of California

I’m very excited to be leading a faculty development workshop at Dominican University of California  :-) on February 24th. Here’s the draft abstract, based in part on a talk I gave at EDUCAUSE Learning Initiatives in 2010:

Creative Collaboration and Immersive Engagement: The Hyperlinked Campus

Emerging technologies for communication and creation of content afford the possibility of the connected, “always on” educational environment. The Hyperlinked Campus is a model of open communication, transparency, social engagement, guided exploration, and creativity. This session will explore how some tools can extend the classroom beyond physical buildings to engage learners with their peers and with the world. The session will focus on open learning systems for courses, Twitter in the classroom and virtual learning space, and the creation of  personal learning networks. Moving beyond the walled garden and into participatory networks of learning and engagement can benefit both faculty and students.

  1. You are such a great inspiration! I am a huge proponent/practitioner of immersive education. Your blog shows me a path I might take. I cannot wait until you teach MARA cohort 4. /cheers Susan

  2. Since the comments post links to blogs – here is a more appropriate link to my MARA blog. I am the fortunate to have the largest metaverse (a mixed immersive teaching and learning environment) in the world (so say the founders of the Media Grid immersive education initiative). It is underutilized at the moment – but features live camera and mike feeds so that visitors and online students can visit my classroom in real time as avatars. It is really very cool. The post about it is the first “Metaverse Program at St. Paul Community College” at this link above.
