Virtual worlds, real learning, revisited
Tuesday 19th June 2007, 16.00 - 17.30pm (UK time)
Virtual Congress Centre, Eduserv Island
Following on from our recent and successful Eduserv Foundation Symposium 2007, "Virtual worlds, real learning?" we are very pleased to announce an in-world discussion session with the speakers from the symposium. This session will be an opportunity to ask questions of the symposium speakers and to discuss the current state of Second Life more generally, with a particular emphasis on how Second Life can and should be used in practice to deliver and support learning and research.
The panel session will take an open, free format, approach although we will chair the meeting to try and ensure that only one person is speaking at a time. There will be no presentations as such, though you are strongly encouraged to view the symposium presentations before the event to help inform the discussion - they are all available in the viewing booths alongside the Virtual Congress Centre on Eduserv Island.
Registration is not required but attendance on the day will be limited to about 40 avatars. Bring your questions, thoughts and comments with you. We look forward to seeing you in-world.
Further information about the symposium (including the presentations and streaming) is available from our Web site:
I know this will be an ungodly time for New Zelanders to attend but should be a very interesting discussion.
