Seems like ALT-C 2009 conversations are sprouting here and there. I’m looking forward to this conference, partly because it’s happening at my host institution, and partly because I can’t wait to give my presentations, watch the keynotes, and spend time talking with smart people. Join me when I’ll be talking about the following:
(In the first presentation I try to define emerging technologies with a view to developing a research agenda for enhancing educational practice. In the second presentation, Aaron Doering and I, apply the Adventure Learning approach to higher education and present one example of how traditional curricula can be transformed to experiential, social, collaborative, and authentic learning experiences).
See you there!
p.s. i dislike labels such as “authentic” as much as the next person, but sometimes it’s easier to describe something in a sentence using these convoluted terms.
