The Learning Studio is a community of practice (CoP) around learning technology use in Art, Design and Media within UAL. It is open to anyone to join and participate, whatever your role or current use or experience of learning technology.
The Learning Studio is holding an informal Bar Camp (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BarCamp) style workshop on using digital and social media for teaching and learning from 17.00-19.00 on Thursday June 7th in M401 in the Media Block at LCC. There will be hands on activities and demos on things like blogs, social networks, the DIAL project, and a presentation of the new drupal based collaborative research portal on the Vietnam War, NAM. All are aimed at non-expert users. If you want to contribute to the workshop and talk about something that you are using in your own practice, please do so. You can just turn up and talk about something that you have worked on, or email us in advance and we can facilitate a space for you. There will be a range of activities, and the approach is very informal – there are no formal presentations, instead colleagues will be talking about how they are using a variety of approaches in their teaching and learning. There is also no formal schedule, so you can turn up when you like – colleagues will be demonstrating their activities in different parts of the room.
We will wrap up with a group discussion led by Paul Lowe on how Open Educational Resources can be used in courses.
If you want to participate as a presenter please feel free to do so, if you want to just turn up on the day and talk about something relevant that is also fine. If you need any extra kit – like a laptop, sound, plasma screen etc – then let us know in advance.
In the spirit of Bar Camp, there will be cake and pop.
Look forward to seeing you there, Paul
