Catching up :)

One of me in SL

This is "me"

Sorry about yesterday – just became overwhelmed by copyright 🙂 I don’t know if any of you follow our Research Seminars in Second Life but you are all very welcome to join in. the next seminar is on Thursday October 27th at Lunchtime (1200hrs UK time) that’s 8am SLT. Our speaker is Gann McGann (Dr Mar Childs from Coventry Uni), always lots of fun, so be ready for a stimulating discussion on the ethics of teaching in virtual worlds. For more detail see the blog http://digitalliteracywork.wordpress.com/research-seminar-at-uow/ Whilst there see the Special for December 1st with Tom Boellstorff. We’re still at the same place http://slurl.com/secondlife/University%20of%20Worcester/146/207/26

I’ve found a few interesting things you might enjoy. If you want to see who is Tweeting terms you are interested in you can use Protovis (this is one I tried earlier). You just type the term in the box and click, it’s easy to see who are the people talking most about your subject. You might pick up more people to connect to for your research. If you want to know more about the technical bits this blog might help.

Here’s something for the lecturers. I know you are all constantly thinking at least six months ahead about what to do with your module or the course. I thought you might find some tips and articles from JISC helpful when working on the curriculum There’s lots of stuff here on Approaches to Curriculum Design so do take a little time to read through it.
