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.
